On Wednesday, President Obama is scheduled to make his ninth visit to Los Angeles since he’s been in office. The very last time Obama visited L.A. was back in October for the taping of “The Tonight with Jay Leno” and attended fundraisers in Hancock Park. Time and time again President Obama has been interested in campaigning and fundraising in Hollywood. It’s no surprise with the courtship, because in less than nine months the presidential election begins.

In October, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith hosted a presidential fundraiser at James and Mai Lassiter’s Hancock Park home, leading up to a Latino gala hosted by Eva Longoria at the lovely home of stars, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith. On April 21st, Obama joined Culver City and Brentwwod for some successful fundraising, along with fundraisers in West Hollywood on Sept. 26. Many are looking forward to the President’s trip to San Francisco and Corona del Mar for more campaigning events this coming Thursday.
