DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A day before sharing the stage with his Republican predecessor, President Barack Obama is raising Democratic money in Texas. Air Force One touched down at Dallas Love Field Wednesday evening. More than a hundred people and Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey greeted the president and Mrs. Obama.

They 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.

The president and Mrs. Obama will also headline a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee.

On Thursday, President Obama will travel to Baylor University in Waco, 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 injured hundreds more.
