RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) — President Barack Obama is spending a long Father’s Day weekend in the California desert oasis of Rancho Mirage.

The president and first lady arrived at the Palm Springs airport Friday night after visiting an Indian reservation earlier in the day.

They are staying with White House decorator Michael Smith and his partner, U.S. Ambassador to Spain James Costos, at their vacation home.

Obama plans to take a short flight to Orange County on Saturday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door event at a private home. Then he’s scheduled to deliver the commencement address at the University of California, Irvine.

Aides also say he’ll be in frequent contact with his national security team for updates on the violence in Iraq.
