WASHINGTON (AP) — A day before sharing the stage with his Republican predecessor, President Barack Obama is raising Democratic money in Texas.

Obama is heading Wednesday to Dallas, where he and first lady Michelle Obama will headline a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee.

The president and Mrs. Obama will attend the dedication ceremony Thursday for former President George W. Bush's presidential library at Southern Methodist University. The ceremony will be a rare joint appearance for Obama and Bush, plus other living former presidents.

Obama will also travel to Baylor University in Waco, Texas, for a memorial service for victims of the fertilizer plant explosion last week in the nearby town of West. The blast left 14 people dead and hundreds more injured.
