Rob Reiner Hosts Hillary Clinton at Los Angeles Fundraiser

Updated

Hillary Clinton raised money on Thursday at the home of Rob and Michele Reiner, as she made her fifth campaign swing through Los Angeles since announcing her candidacy.

The event was heavy in TV showrunners, as well as entertainment figures such as Ted Danson, writer-producer Damon Lindelof, actor Jason George, Katherine Fugate, writer Vicki Iovine and attorney Jason Sloane, according to attendees who were there. Also there was designer Michael Smith.

Clinton attended a small reception in the Reiners’ entry parlor and later spoke in the garden, with about 350 in attendance.

She talked a bit about sending a copy of her book, “Hard Choices,” to GOP candidates who claim she did nothing of note as Secretary of State, as her tome talks about such moments as negotiating the release of Chinese dissidents. Clinton quipped that she wrote the candidates a note that they “should have a book club,” according to one attendee.

The event at the Reiners’ Brentwood home, with tickets starting at $500, was billed as a conversation with Clinton. Those who donate $2,700 got a photo with Clinton, and those who raised $27,000 got access to the host reception.

Clinton attended a fundraiser on Wednesday night at the home of Christina Aguilera and fiance Matthew Rutler, and was scheduled to attend a lunchtime conversation on Thursday at the Hancock Park home of Joe Waz and Cynthia Telles.

All told, the three fundraisers were expected to bring in about $2 million, fundraising sources said.

Also on tap on Clinton’s visit is an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Update: During her visit Clinton picked up the endorsement of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

“She will fight to transform the lives of hard-working Americans because she shares the values we hold dear — she has a passion for civil rights, the know-how to connect our communities, the drive to tackle economic inequalities and a commitment to ensuring millions know the benefits of citizenship,” he said in a statement.

Garcetti backed Barack Obama in 2008.

Garcetti was at the Hancock Park fundraiser on Thursday afternoon.

Second update: Garcetti’s office says that the endorsement announcement “was sent in error” on the official account and that it should have been sent on a campaign account. So the endorsement is on. There was some confusion after am endorsement announcement was sent out via email but the followed by another email that the announcement was “sent in error.”

Others at the event included Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis, State Sen. Ben Allen, Kathleen Brown, Fabian Nunez, and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla.
