JBJ catches a ride to NYC on AF1

President Obama made a quick trip to New York City on Monday night for some fundraiser but he took along a very important guest on Air Force One: singer Jon Bon Jovi. He was already on board when the travel pool boarded but they did catch a glimpse of him getting off the plane, according to pool reports. JBJ will headline one of tonight's fundraisers when he gives a musical performance at the event at the Waldorf Astoria.

Bon Jovi was appointed to the president's White House Council for Community Solutions back in December 2010. He visited the White House in January to meet about a program to hire at-risk teenagers for summer jobs.

For the record, a White House official tells the pool, "For those of you asking, Bon Jovi's travel was paid for by the campaign."
