It appears that Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer is going to get lots of help from the White House as she seeks a fourth term this year.

Boxer's campaign announced today that President Barack Obama will travel to the Bay Area next month to attend a joint fundraising event for Boxer and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Obama attended a fundraiser for Boxer in Los Angeles last night.

"The jet fumes of Air Force One haven't even cleared, and already Barbara Boxer is begging for an encore," Republican National Committee spokesman Jahan Wilcox said via e-mail. "Obviously the internals in the Boxer campaign indicate that she is going to have the fight of her political career."
