MILPITAS, California — President Barack Obama is opening a weeklong visit to California where his first stops include raising money for fellow Democrats.

Obama is scheduled to headline four fundraisers Thursday, two in Silicon Valley and two in Los Angeles.

Organizers say singer John Legend is on tap to perform at one of the Los Angeles events.

While in Los Angeles, the president planned to tape an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that's to air Friday.

Obama arrived in California late Wednesday after delivering a speech about civility in politics to the Illinois General Assembly. He entered politics as an Illinois state senator.

Obama has invited the leaders of 10 Southeast Asian nations to a two-day summit that opens Monday in Rancho Mirage, California.
