SHARE Sweet: Oprah, Caroline Kennedy, Michelle to stump for Obama in Los Angeles on Sunday

LOS ANGELES, CALIF.–Barack Obama won’t be in California again before the Tuesday primary here–but he is sending in a powerful team of surrogates–Oprah Winfrey, Caroline Kennedy and wife Michelle, all to appear at a rally here. Oprah hosted a fund-raiser for Obama at her home near Santa Barbara last year and stumped with Obama in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

At a news conference on Friday morning here, a California reporter asked him if he was skimping on California.

We’ll see. I dont share that view,” said Obama who probably knew that an Oprah visit was in the works. I think this is gpoing to be very competitive. But weve got 22 states, Obama said. And just from a purely strategic perspective, I think everybody understands that if we are spending all of our time in one state and not spending time in the other 21, then that might not lead to the most delegates”
