Don’t be surprised if you see a big presidential motorcade in Los Angeles today.

President Barack Obama is making the quick stop in Los Angeles during several days of fundraising.

He is set to attend a fundraiser with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the home of John Wells. Wells is the producer behind the TV shows “ER” and “The West Wing.”

It reportedly costs $2,500 per person to get into the L.A. fundraiser. The proceeds go toward the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The L.A. fundraiser is one of several the president plans to attend this week before the midterm campaign season roars into full gear.

President Obama last visited the L.A. area in April for a different Democratic fundraiser.
