Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama turns his attention to campaign politics Monday night, as he headlines two events for the Democratic National Committee and his re-election campaign.
According to the White House schedule, the president first attends a gathering of approximately 140 guests at a private residence in the nation's capital. A DNC official says proceeds from the $15,000 per family gathering will go to the Obama Victory Fund, with the money raised shared by the president's re-election campaign and DNC.
A source with knowledge of the event says it's being held at the home of Don and Katrina Peebles. Don Peebles is a real estate entrepreneur and sits on the Obama campaign's national finance committee.
The president then heads to the St. Regis Hotel to meet with approximately 60 guests. While not a fundraiser, a source says the gathering is a donor outreach event.
Last week Obama was the main attraction at two birthday-themed fundraisers in Chicago. The events were held on the eve of the president's 50th birthday. The fundraisers were Obama's first since the start of the third quarter of fundraising on July 1. His last event prior to the Chicago fundraisers on June 30th was in Philadelphia.
Obama's reelection campaign and the DNC raised a combined $86 million between April and June, blowing past the combined $60 million goal set by both groups at the start of the second quarter. Of the $86 million raised, the campaign said over $47 million went into the coffers of Obama for America and more than $38 million went to the DNC.
