Obama will also speak at AFL-CIO convention here

obama-leno-grab.jpgPresident Obama's September 9 trip into Los Angeles isn't only to keynote the DNC fundraiser that night in Hancock Park. He also will address the national AFL-CIO convention that will be here for four days that week. The White House "is billing the appearance at the labor convention as the latest in the president's summer-long middle class economic tour," say The Hill and the LA Times. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Labor Secretary Tom Perez are also expected to speak.

The Democratic National Committee fundraiser is scheduled for the home of "Friends" creator Marta Kauffman. The crowd is expected to stay small, capped at around 35 guests, with tickets running the usual $32,400 per guest. Obama was here earlier in August to appear on Jay Leno and make a couple of other stops.
