President Obama, Mitt Romney in Bay Area

Both candidates were in the Bay Area to raise money.


President Barack Obama touched down in San Francisco Sunday
evening for a brief fundraising visit, following a stop in Colorado to mourn
the victims of a mass movie theater shooting that left 12 dead Friday.
  
President Obama, who was originally scheduled to arrive in the Bay
Area today, arrived at San Francisco International Airport at 8:15 p.m.
Sunday.
  
His campaign schedule changed to accommodate a visit Sunday in
Aurora, Colo., to speak at a vigil for victims of a fatal shooting there
during a midnight screening of the film "The Dark Knight Rises" Friday.
  
The president will then head to Reno, Nev., this morning from SFO
around 11:25 a.m. for a fundraising event before returning to the Bay Area, according to the White House Press Office.
  
He is scheduled to arrive at Oakland International Airport around
3 p.m. today, according to the executive press office.
  
As part of his Bay Area schedule, the president will speak at an
event at Oakland's Fox Theater and later visit a private home in Piedmont.
  
Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. Obama will leave from San Francisco
International Airport to head to Portland, Ore., to continue his campaigning for re-election this November.
  
Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was in
the Bay Area Sunday, attending three fundraisers.
  
Romney attended a private lunch in Woodside, followed by a
reception at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel and a dinner at a home in Pacific Heights.
