President Obama To Visit San Francisco This Week

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS) – President Barack Obama will visit San Francisco later this week, the White House announced Monday.

The visit is an overnight trip, according to the president’s tentative schedule. Air Force One is scheduled to arrive at San Francisco International Airport on Thursday afternoon and depart Friday morning.

Officials said Mr. Obama would be the headline speaker at fundraising events for the Democratic National Committee and San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, who is running for California Attorney General.

The president last visited the Bay Area in May of this year, when he appeared at a fundraiser for U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer in San Francisco and then toured a solar facility in Fremont.

In a CBS 5 KPIX-TV poll, conducted earlier this month by SurveyUSA, Obama’s job performance drew mixed results from Californians.

The poll found 49% disapproved of the job President Obama’s doing, while 45% approved. But the poll has a margin of error of 4.1%, making the results a statistical tie.
