Pres. Obama Announces Next Bay Area Trip

Polls show that the president will easily win California and its 55 electoral votes.

President Barack Obama is returning to San Francisco for another fundraising trip next month -- his fourth trip to the Bay Area since May,  campaign officials announced today.

Obama will be coming to San Francisco on Oct. 8 after visiting Los Angeles the previous day.

The president's last trip to the region was in July when he made a handful of appearances in the East Bay, including at a large rally at the Fox  Theater in Oakland.

The California trip comes a few days after the first presidential debate between Obama and Republican Mitt Romney, set for Oct. 3 in Denver.
Obama and Romney are also scheduled to debate Oct. 16 in Hempstead, N.Y., and Oct. 22 in Boca Raton, Fl.

The Chronicle reported the fundraiser will be similar to an appearance he made at the Nob Hill Masonic Center in February. That event drew hundreds of both small and high-dollar donors.
