WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- President Barack Obama will be heading back to the area for a fundraiser, Hearst Connecticut Media is reporting.

The event in Greenwich, Conn., is set for Oct. 7 at the Conyers Farm estate of Richard and Ellen Schapps Richman, who hosted Obama at a 2010 fundraiser, Hearst said.

Obama is likely to fly into Westchester Airport in White Plains for this latest visit to the area. It's become a familiar landing spot for the president, who most recently attended fundraisers in New Rochelle and Purchase and a wedding in Mount Pleasant over Labor Day weekend.

The $10,000-per-person fundraiser this fall is for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Hearst reported.

Connecticut does not have a Senate campaign this year. The top race in the statewide is a tight gubernatorial rematch between Democratic incumbent Dannel Malloy and Republican challenger Tom Foley.
