WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Obama will have a late night chat with Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show" next week.

White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer says in a tweet that Obama will be on the show Tuesday. Obama will be traveling on the West Coast next week, raising money for his re-election bid and trying to boost public support for his jobs bill.

This will be Obama's fourth time on Leno's show. He made two appearances as a presidential candidate. His last appearance was in March 2009, shortly after taking office.

NBC, which airs Leno's show, said at the time that Obama was the first sitting president ever to appear on "The Tonight Show."
