SEATTLE —

President Barack Obama's first stop in Seattle Tuesday was at a Pioneer Square bakery.

He's meeting with an owner of the Grand Central Bakery and several other small business owners to talk about jobs. His arrival was cheered by a friendly crowd of several dozen people.

Sen. Patty Murray traveled in another car in his caravan from Boeing Field. The president is making his first trip to Washington since his election to give Murray a primary election day boost.

Obama is headlining two fundraisers for Murray - a luncheon at the downtown Westin hotel and a private event at the home of RealNetworks founder Rob Glaser.

Demonstrators gathered outside the Westin, calling for immigration reform, ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and creating jobs.
