WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Barack Obama is embarking on a mission that has regularly proved a winner for him - raising money for his fellow Democrats.

Obama on Tuesday is starting a three-day West Coast trip, during which he is scheduled to attend fundraising events in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles less than four months ahead of midterm elections that could change Washington's balance of power.

The trip comes as Obama is dealing with a series of high-profile tests of his presidency, from Eastern Europe to the Middle East to the Southern border.

But on the fundraising trail Obama remains a potent draw among the Democratic Party's wealthy donors, who pay up to $32,400 to be in intimate settings with the president.
