LOS ANGELES (AP) - President Barack Obama will go from Southern California to San Diego to Silicon Valley on the second of a three-day California swing that includes five Democratic fundraisers.

After a roundtable discussion Thursday morning at the Beverly Hilton to benefit the Democratic National Committee, Obama will fly to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego for an afternoon fundraiser at a private home, followed by a flight to Moffett Field near Sunnyvale for two more Democratic Party events in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In a brief break from politics Wednesday night, Obama shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen as he received an award at the 20th anniversary gala of Steven Spielberg’s USC Shoah Foundation, which is dedicated to preserving accounts of the Holocaust.

Event host Conan O’Brien took the chance to jokingly berate Obama for the crippling effects his frequent fundraising trips always have on Los Angeles traffic.
