    The president stops in LA for a fundraising dinner.

    President Barack Obama will pop into Los Angeles on Monday to help raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will join the president for the fundraiser, which will be held at the home of "West Wing" and "ER" producer John Wells and his wife Marilyn.

    According to Variety, the guest list includes Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Barbra Streisand, J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath.

    Seats at the dinner are priced between $2,500 and $30,400, and some of the heaviest hitters in show business are expected to attend.

    Air Force One is scheduled to touch down at LAX about 4 p.m. Monday.

    Earlier in the day, the president will make a fundraising stop in Milwaukee to benefit Mayor Tom Barrett. After Los Angeles, he heads to Seattle on Tuesday and is due in Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday -- all for fundraisers in his most extensive fundraiser trip planned for the mid-term election season.
