WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is going on a fundraising sweep through New York and Rhode Island as he continues to help Democrats raise money for November's elections.

Obama headlines three events on Friday. Two are just north of New York City, in Westchester County, and the third is in Newport, Rhode Island.

The New York fundraisers will benefit the Democratic National Committee, which is still paying off debt from the 2012 campaign season.

In Rhode Island, Obama is the headliner for a fundraiser benefiting the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which works to elect Democrats to the House.

Obama is expected to be joined at the Rhode Island event by House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

He's spending the night in Westchester County.
