Amid the wreckage, U.S. President Barack Obama speaks as he visits the tornado devastated town of ViloniaBy Steve Holland LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – President Barack Obama brought his fund-raising prowess to California on Wednesday and urged Democrats not to let increasing attention on the 2016 presidential race distract them from focusing on November 4 congressional elections. Obama issued the warning at the first of five Democratic events he will attend over three days that will raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for use by the party’s candidates for the Senate, the House of Representatives and other races. At the Bel Air home of Disney chairman Alan Horn, Obama spoke to a crowd that included actress Barbra Streisand and her husband, actor James Brolin. He exhorted them to help turn back a strong challenge from Republicans who are trying to win control of the Senate and build on their majority in the House.
