Obama in San Francisco for Boxer

Barack Obama was in San Francisco last night, as the keynote speaker at a fundraiser for California Senator, Barbara Boxer.

Boxer has just announced that she will be contesting the 2010 election, and is getting in early with fundraising. There is speculation that Arnold Schwarzenegger may contest the Senate position in 2010 when his term as Governor expires.

Last night, the fundraiser put at least $350,000 extra in her campaign account, thanks to the 1400 people who turned out for her...and also perhaps to hear Obama speak.

Barack Obama will today be in Los Angeles for a rally at the Rancho Cienega Sports Complex at 2pm followed by a fundraiser organized by Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg tonight.

On Wednesday night, Obama will be in Des Moines, Iowa for a Town Hall meeting at the Polk County Convention Complex at 7.45pm - doors open 6.45pm.
