President Obama will travel west next month to raise money for California Sen. Barbara Boxer and the Democratic National Committee, the White House confirmed Wednesday afternoon.

The fundraiser will take place in the Los Angeles area. Further details were unavailable.

The event comes on the heels of a fundraiser for Boxer headlined by former Vice President Al Gore earlier this year and as the three-term Democratic senator is facing what is expected to be her toughest re-election battle yet.
