WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is heading to the West Coast next week for a three-day campaign trip heavy on fundraising and bracketed by speeches to top veterans and civil rights groups.
His re-election team says Obama will headline three Democratic fundraisers in Oakland, Calif., on Monday. The following day, he'll speak at a rally and fundraiser in Portland, Oregon, and more fundraisers in Seattle.
Aides previously had announced plans for Obama to address the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, Nev., on Monday and the National Urban League in New Orleans on Wednesday. Those are considered "official" events - part of his presidential duties - even though Obama has made a concerted effort to win over military votes this fall, and to maintain his record turnout among black voters.
