HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit New Jersey next month.

The White House tells The Record newspaper Obama will attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Cresskill on Oct. 6. The event will take place weeks before midterm congressional elections.

Obama was last in the Garden State in July when he promoted small business legislation at a sub shop in Edison.
