Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will headline an Aug. 16 fundraiser in Los Angeles, POLITICO reported today. Tensions have reportedly been high between the two leaders since Obama's press secretary publicly acknowledged that Democrats could suffer big losses in the upcoming midterm elections, possibly even losing their majority in the House.
Obama has already hosted a series of California fundraisers for Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is facing a tough re-election challenge, the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
