WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is getting a little help from former President Bill Clinton at a trio of campaign fundraisers in New York.

|

The presidential duo will speak at a high-dollar fundraiser at a private home, headline a gala at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel and end the night at an event dubbed "Barack on Broadway" at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

|

Monday's trip is Obama's first of two fundraising blitzes in New York in the coming weeks. He will return to Manhattan next week for a fundraiser at the home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

Obama is seeking to persuade voters that he is still the right steward for the economy following a dismal jobs report out last week that showed an uptick in the unemployment rate.
