Rarely have we seen former president Barack Obama involved in any US politics since leaving office, but with so much to lose he’s hitting the campaign trial.

On Saturday September 8, Obama will stomp into Southern California to hold a rally to boost seven Democratic candidates running in competitive House districts across the state.

Obama will head to the Republican territory of Orange County alongside Democrats Josh Harder, who is running against Rep. Jeff Denham of Turlock; T.J. Cox, who’s challenging Rep. David Valadao of Hanford; and Katie Hill, who is opposing Rep. Steve Knight of Palmdale.

Also in attendance, Democrats Gil Cisneros, who hopes to replace retiring Rep. Ed Royce of Fullerton; Katie Porter, who’s challenging Rep. Mimi Walters of Laguna Beach; Harley Rouda, who’s opposing Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa; and Mike Levin, who hopes to replace retiring Rep. Darrell Issa of Vista.
