President Obama will be coming back to Los Angeles on Thursday — staying through Friday — to raise money for Congressional Democrats, who could do really well in November if fractures within the Republican Party give them an opportunity, depending on their state, down the ballot.
According to Thursday's schedule released by the White House, the president is scheduled to arrive in LA at 7:25 p.m. PDT. From the airport, he will go to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee where he "will deliver remarks and take questions," according to the schedule. Various media outlets, including Variety, reported that this fundraiser will be in Bel-Air, at Alan and Cindy Horn's home. Alan Horn is the chairman of The Walt Disney Studios.
Variety reported that tickets to Thursday's start at $15,000 per couple, but increase to $33,400 for "co-host tickets" and $66,800 to be "co-chairs."
Obama will spend the night, and according to the weekly guidance sent by the White House on April 1, he will "attend a DSCC [Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee]" event and then fly to San Francisco.
Friday's fundraiser will be at the home of actor Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer, according to Variety. Some media outlets have reported it will be at their Santa Monica property while others have said their Brentwood property.
