Obama to fundraise in Bay Area just two weeks after last visit
President Barack Obama will squeeze in two San Francisco fundraisers Wednesday during a West Coast campaign swing — just two weeks after his last fundraising trip to the Bay Area.
Obama will headline a June 6 luncheon at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in the Merchants Exchange Building on California St. in San Francisco, with tickets ranging from $5,000 for admission to $50,000 for “table captain” status.
The President is also scheduled to attend a roundtable discussion at One Market Plaza before leaving for Los Angeles, where he is expected to attend an LGBT gala that evening.
Obama will then go to Las Vegas on Thursday, where he will speak at a public event at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The UNLV event, notably, will be free — Nevada is expected to be a battleground state in November’s general election, while Obama holds a commanding lead in California.
In a sign of the feverish pace of campaign fundraising this cycle, the visit comes just two weeks after Obama held three fundraisers here, including a rally for paying supporters in Redwood City. His Republican opponent, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, made his own fundraising stop in the Bay Area last week.
