Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

President Barack Obama will be back in California to raise money on Wednesday, with fundraisers in San Francisco and Los Angeles a day after the primary election in the Golden State.

The swing starts in San Francisco, with a luncheon fundraiser at the Julia Morgan Ballroom. General admission tickets cost $5,000.

From there Obama will travel to Los Angeles, where he will speak at an LGBT Leadership Council gala. Tickets for the event, at which the singer Pink is scheduled to perform, started at $1,250.

The president is expected to overnight in Los Angeles before flying to Las Vegas on Thursday for an official, non-campaign event. Nevada, unlike California, is expected to be contested in the November election.

Obama's visit to donor-rich California is his second in less than a month. Republican Mitt Romney, meanwhile, raised money here last week.
