    President Barack Obama arrived in Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon for an appearance on "The Tonight Show" amid a campaign swing that includes stops in key battleground states.

    The president will be in Los Angeles for just a few hours as he visits four states in one day. President Obama began the day at the White House before flying to Davenport, Iowa, and Denver for campaign events.

    The president landed at Los Angeles International Airport at about 5:30 p.m. The appearance on "The Tonight Show" will be his fifth, the third since he was elected president.

    After the 6:30 p.m. show taping, he will fly to Las Vegas for the final campaign event of the day.

    With just two weeks before the election, both candidates are covering significant ground during their campaign swings. Republican candidate Mitt Romney will be in Reno, Nev. Wednesday before touching down in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

    Romney will travel to Cincinnati, Ames, Iowa, then head back to Ohio for a stop in Akron before the end of the week. 

    President Obama is scheduled to visit Florida, Virginia and Ohio on Thursday, with a stop in Chicago.
