This week the president is headlining four fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee. Wednesday, after giving a speech on the economy in New Jersey and after taping an interview with ABC's "The View" in New York City, Obama is the main attraction at two Manhattan fundraisers - one at the Four Seasons Hotel and one at a private residence. A source with knowledge tells CNN that the private residence belongs to Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
Guests attending the Wednesday night events are asked to give the legal maximum contribution of $30,400 per election cycle, according to a Democratic source.
Tuesday night the president headlined a DNC fundraiser in the nation's capitol, and with another DNC event in Washington D.C. scheduled for Thursday night. Next month Obama continues the fundraising push with events for the party in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and Austin, Texas.
Democrats need millions of dollars to defend their majorities in the House and Senate this November, and they hope the president can continue to bring in the big bucks.
As of the end of June, the DNC had nearly $11 million cash on hand, with nearly $3.9 million debt. Their GOP counterpart, the Republican National Committee, reported $10.9 million in the bank, with just over $2 million in debt.
