LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — President Barack Obama has arrived in the Southland for several fundraisers.
Video from Los Angeles International Airport showed the president exiting Air Force One shortly after landing at 1:15 p.m. Sunday.
Ed Mertz, reporting for KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO, says the president is slated to speak at three campaign fundraisers. He will be joined by former President Bill Clinton and actor George Clooney. The two-day visit marks the president’s 12th trip to the Southland.
Traffic restrictions for parts of Pico Boulevard and Avenue of the Stars were scheduled to be in place from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Additionally, Sunset Boulevard between Beverly Glen Drive and Doheny Drive in Beverly Hills will be closed from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
By 5 p.m., closures will be in place from Century City to downtown Los Angeles to allow the presidential motorcade to travel to the Nokia Theatre Downtown for what’s being called the “30 Days to Victory” concert and rally.
The event will feature performances by Jon Bon Jovi, Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry and Earth Wind & Fire.
More streets are expected to be affected on Monday during rush-hour traffic when the president is expected to leave Los Angeles.
