President Barack Obama won’t be coming to California next week as planned.

The White House announced Thursday that the president – now in Russia for the G20 Summit – will remain in Washington next week to work on getting a resolution from Congress to authorize use of military force in Syria.

President Obama had been scheduled to address the quadrennial AFL-CIO convention Monday in Los Angeles. U.S. Secretary of Labor Tom Perez and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., still are scheduled to address the convention.
