Barack Obama Slated to Fundraise in Beverly Hills
Former President Barack Obama will appear at a fundraiser in Beverly Hills in May for Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO). POTUS44 is listed as a special guest at the May 6th fundraiser hosted by the actressKatie McGrath, film studio executiveJeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg, and other LA A-listers. This is his first post-presidential fundraising event for an individual candidate. Politico reports that the fundraiser is paid for by McCaskill 2018 Victory -- a joint fundraising committee for McCaskill, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the Missouri Democratic State Committee. We don’t know the price tag but given the guest list, we can imagine it’s pretty hefty. McCaskill, who was an early back of Obama’s, is one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats seeking re-election this year. She will likely face Republican state Attorney General Josh Hawley.
