Obama fundraisers today in Seattle area

SEATTLE (AP) - Obama stops in Seattle Tuesday evening for a couple of fundraisers on the east side of Lake Washington.

No public events are planned for the visit, which is part of a West Coast campaign swing.

Obama is expected to arrive around 6 p.m. from Portland. The fundraisers are a dinner and another event at the home of Costco co-founder Jim Sinegal in Hunts Point.

The president is expected to spend the night in Seattle and depart Wednesday from Boeing Field.

The president last visited Washington in May for fundraising.
