President Barack Obama is making one more trip to Los Angeles before the November 6 election, but it's going to be a quick one that will give him the chance to reach out to millions of voters around the nation.

Obama is slated to arrive at 5:25 p.m. Wednesday at Los Angeles International Airport. His sole destination: "The Tonight Show," where he will tape an appearance, then head right back on the campaign trail. He's slated to depart on Air Force One at 7:45 p.m.

"This marks Mr. Obama’s fifth appearance on the show, his third since taking the office of President of the United States," notes "The Tonight Show." He's expected to chat with host Jay Leno on the subject of "the home stretch of the campaign."

Information about how Obama will travel from the airport to the Burbank set of the "Tonight Show" has not been made available.
