While President Obama remains in Washington tomorrow, his day isn’t entirely absent presidential politics; he’s scheduled to appear at back-to-back fundraisers at the W Hotel in the late afternoon. These follow the dual fundraisers he is held in Connecticut Monday night.
Per a campaign official, the first event is a “roundtable” discussion with 20 people. The second event is also a roundtable, this time with 24 supporters. Tickets to the first event cost $40,000. The campaign isn’t yet saying how much tickets are to the second event.
