“First stop this afternoon is Milwaukee, Wis., where Obama will tour Master Lock Company, the world's largest manufacturer of padlocks,” USA Today writes. “The president plans to promote the idea of ‘in-sourcing,’ bringing jobs back from overseas. … Then it's off to Los Angeles, Cal., where Obama headlines a pair of campaign fundraisers.

“President Barack Obama will be tapping into Hollywood money in his first California fundraising trip since anti-piracy legislation backed by the film industry was scuttled in Congress,” Bloomberg writes. “Over the next three days Obama is seeking to raise more than $8 million for his re-election, the bulk of it coming from six fundraisers in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Corona Del Mar, California, including one event co-hosted by comedian Will Ferrell. He also plans to raise money in Washington state. Californians have given more to the president’s campaign than donors from any other state, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.”
