(WASHINGTON) — President Obama heads west Wednesday for another round of star-studded, high-dollar campaign fundraisers in California, the state that’s been most generous to his re-election campaign.
It will be Obama’s fourth trip to the Golden State this year – tying New York as his most visited state outside the greater D.C. area.
Obama will attend five events on his 24-hour visit, two in San Francisco and three in Los Angeles.
The events will raise at least $5.4 million combined, based on figures provided by the Obama campaign. Proceeds will go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee of Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.
California remains the top state contributing to Obama’s re-election effort, accounting for roughly 20 percent of all contributions so far, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.
