President Obama attended a fundraising event for San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris at a private residence in Atherton on Thursday night. Ms. Harris is a candidate for California attorney general.
The event was held at the Atherton home of former state controller Steve Westly. A venture capitalist, Mr. Westly ran for governor on the Democratic ticket in 2006 and co-chaired Mr. Obama's California campaign in 2008.
Traffic on the Alameda de las Pulgas was halted for a time as the presidential motorcade passed.
The motorcade departed the Westly residence around 6:20 p.m.
The president schedule called for him to travel to a private residence in Palo Alto to deliver remarks at a Democratic National Committee dinner at 7 p.m. See Full security locks down Palo Alto's Addison Ave. (Palo Alto Online).
