Obama to New York to Fundraise for House Democrats

AP

President Barack Obama will travel to New York next week to raise money for Democrats.

The White House says Obama will be in New York on Friday. He'll attend a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which helps Democratic candidates running for the House.

It's Obama's first fundraiser since the partial government shutdown that started at the beginning of October and lasted until Thursday. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden both had to cancel political events and trips during the shutdown.

The White House also says Obama will host a health care event at the White House on Monday. That event comes as the White House is facing intense criticism over major glitches affecting new insurance exchanges created by Obama's health care law.
