There’s a fund-raiser on the books for John McCain on Wednesday at the Century Plaza Hotel, with the candidate set to return to raise money from Los Angeles and Hollywood donors.
The event costs $1,000 per person, or $2,500 per person with a limited edition “McCain-Palin CA” lapel pin. Tickets to a private reception start at $10,000 (contribute or raise), rising to $250,000.
The latter level requires host chairs to raise that amount, with a maximum individual contribution of $40,800. It includes on table of ten, special acknowledgment at a host committee dinner and six tickets to a private reception with three photo opportunities.
What’s unknown is whether McCain will still attend given the financial crisis in Washington and his announcement that he was suspending his campaign to concentrate on the proposed bailout. He’s in Oxford for the debate, but the word is that he’s returning to Washington on Saturday.
In any case, expect the Obama campaign to make some hay out of this, as McCain chided Obama last week for his trip to Beverly Hills to raise money at an event headlined by Barbra Streisand.
