RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - He's not preparing for another campaign, but President Obama's courting of the Democratic Party's wealthy donors could translate into millions for the Democratic National Committee.
On Monday, the president was scheduled for three key events in New York City. According to the White House pool report, two were at private residences and one was at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
The Daily Caller reports that one private event was held at the home of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and was attended by 64 people, including singer/actor Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel.
The event came with a $32,000-per person price tag.
Proceeds from the three events will reportedly help fund Democratic Party campaign efforts for the 2014 midterm elections.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the president will hold a series of fundraisers in California on June 7. Tickets for one of the stops - at the hole of entertainment mogul Peter Chernin - start at $10,000 per person and go up to $32,400 depending on the perks, which include a photo with the president.
