President Obama tonight begins a huge California fundraising blitz that will continue through Friday. He’ll hold two events tonight and then one tomorrow, after which he will head off to Reno for a “town hall” on deficit reduction. And then he’s slated to do three more fundraisers in Los Angeles.
From tonight’s pool report:
The events Wednesday are at the Nob Hill Masonic Center, and the dinner is at a private residence. The breakfast is at the St. Regis. All proceeds will go to the Obama Victory Fund. The events are designed to include the broad range of the President’s supporters with tickets starting at $25 and ranging to the legal maximum limit of $35,800. The smaller events will have over 200 guests and the Nob Hill Masonic Center is expected to have approximately 2500.
At the Nob Hill Masonic Center event, DJ Hope and Goapele will be performing. And Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice will be speaking at the Nob Hill event.
