Hillary Clinton is returning to Los Angeles on Wednesday for a series of fundraisers, marking her fifth swing through Southern California since announcing her bid for the presidency.

Also on tap is an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday, completing a tour of broadcast network late-night shows that started with “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and was followed by “Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

In contrast to her last visit in September, Clinton’s poll numbers have improved, following a successful debate in Las Vegas as well as a marathon hearing before a special House committee on Benghazi. Vice President Joseph Biden’s announcement that he will not run also removes a potential rival who could have drawn support from Hollywood.

The campaign is expecting each of the events to reach capacity.

On Wednesday evening, Clinton is scheduled to attend an event at the Beverly Hills home of Christina Aguilera and Matthew Rutler. Aguilera will perform, and the campaign also has been holding a fundraising contest to win a trip to the event. Those who raise $10,000 will get four tickets. Among the cohosts of the event are CAA’s Michael Kives and Darnell Strom.

On Thursday morning, Rob and Michele Reiner will hold a conversation at their Brentwood home, with tickets starting at $500. Those who donate $2,700 will get a photo with Clinton, and those who raise $27,000 will get access to a host reception. The event is sold out and registration is closed.

That afternoon, Clinton will attend another event, at the Hancock Park home of Joe Waz and Cynthia Telles, with tickets starting at $1,000 per person. A ticket of $2,700 includes a photo with Clinton, and those who raise $27,000 will get access to a host reception.

The next night, on Friday, Kives is hosting Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook for an event at his home, with Zach Braff and Kate Hudson as co-hosts. Tickets start at $250 per person. Clinton will not be there. The host committee also includes the Saban Family Foundation’s Alex De Ocampo and Democratic strategists Michael Trujillo and Bill Burton.
