Money, star power await Obama on fundraising tour

WASHINGTON (AP) - Money, star power and Hollywood are awaiting President Barack Obama on a West Coast trip.

The swing will feature a bit of official business, but it's mostly fundraising for a Democratic Party eager to go on offense after a tough stretch.

Obama heads out Sunday afternoon for Seattle, with later stops in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

He's raising money for House and Senate Democrats and the national party.

Big-money events include a reception at the home of retired basketball star Earvin "Magic" Johnson.

The president also will use the trip to push Congress to overhaul immigration laws and he'll promote his economic agenda.
