POTUS goes west

President Obama hits the road once again to the West Coast to raise some money for his campaign. His trip is two-days but Wednesday’s focus is solely on raising cash from various groups in California. While California is obviously not a swing state, this is Obama’s third trip to the state in the last month because that’s where the big donors are. His first stop is in San Francisco where he’ll have two events, both out of the view of cameras. The first one is a financial roundtable with donors which is completely closed press. The second event is a fundraiser luncheon at the Julia Morgan Ballroom. According to the campaign, tickets start at $5000.

Then later in the day, President Obama travels to Los Angeles to attend two more fundraisers. The first is a big LGBT gala at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. We’re told that Pink was scheduled to perform but that she is ill and had to cancel. Darren Criss from “Glee” will be performing in her place. That fundraiser will be open to cameras. He’ll attend one more fundraiser, at a private residence, before heading to his hotel in LA for the night.

    Congrats to Scott Walker, but I think it says more about how WI voters wanted to put a stop to the union entitlement mentality. It is time to eliminate public unions and get their salary packages in line with the people they are supposed to be serving.

    3 yrs and still no budget from the Senate. Obama is obviously worried more about his future than Americas.

        @Steveo George W. Bush may have passed a budget, but then he gave a big bonanza to big Pharma and ran two wars off the books. A lot of good any budget does with that type shenanigans.
