at 08:42 AM ET, 06/06/2012

President Obama has four campaign events in California today, while Mitt Romney will campaign in Texas for a second day.

The Caucus’s Jackie Calmes reports Obama will attend the annual fundraising dinner hosted by the LGBT Leadership Council in Los Angeles that had to be moved from its original location to a larger venue because of increased demand.

And our colleague Nia-Malika Henderson reports Romney is using his time in Texas to reach out to Hispanic voters there. Romney said the “Obama economy” had been particularly hard on Hispanic Americans while speaking at Southwest Office Systems, a Hispanic-owned business.
