President Obama left the Bay Area Saturday afternoon, after spending about 24 hours in San Francisco.

Before he departed, he played a round of golf with 3 friends at the world famous Olympic Club.

His motorcade arrived at the airport around 2:30 p.m. Air Force One then took off several minutes later, to fly back to Joint Base Andrews, just outside of Washington, D.C.

Flight time is just under 5 hours.

The President spent a full day in the Bay Area, attending two Democratic fundraisers.

He arrived Friday afternoon, with daughter Malia.

One fundraiser was held Friday night, at the Pacific Heights mansion of oil heir, Gordon Getty and his wife, Ann.

The event raised a reported $3 million.

The President touched on issues, including the presidential race and the Supreme Court vacancy.

He told the crowd, "I want a Republican Party that is rational and well functioning, but that's not what we have now, and that's why this election is so important."

He praised House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, "I love me some Nancy Pelosi."

He added that he could not have a better political partner in D.C., than Pelosi and her "tough as nails conviction."
