WASHINGTON (CBS / AP) — President Barack Obama plans to raise money for Democrats during a two-day swing through California in the coming weeks.

A Democratic official says the president will headline party fundraisers in San Francisco and Los Angeles on April 20-21. Obama attended a fundraiser in New York City this week that netted $1.5 million for the Democratic National Committee.
