Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton to Return to Los Angeles for Fundraisers

Hillary Clinton will return to Los Angeles next week for a series of fundraisers, in what have been monthly visits to boost her campaign coffers.

On Tuesday, Clinton will attend an early evening event at the home of entrepreneur Sean Parker and his wife Alexandra, a musician, according to an invite. Tickets start at $2,700 per person.

Later, Hillary Clinton will attend a cocktails and dinner event at the home of Marc Nathanson, chairman of Mapleton Investments, and his wife Jane, a psychologist. Sherry Lansing and William Friedkin are co-hosting, with tickets priced at $33,400 per couple. Tickets for donors who want to be listed as co-chairs are $100,000 per couple, with access to a reception and photo with Clinton. Money from the dinner event will go to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint committee of the campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state party committees.

Former President Bill Clinton will be in Los Angeles on Sunday for a reception at the Sherman Oaks home of Warner Bros.’ Greg Silverman and his wife Amanda. Tickets start at $1,000 per person.

Clinton holds a huge cash advantage over Republican rival Donald Trump. In the latest filing with the Federal Election Commission, her campaign had $42 million in cash on hand at the end of May, while Trump’s campaign had just $1.3 million.

Appearing on “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday, Trump tried to minimize the money gap, telling Norah O’Donnell, “I don’t want to devote the rest of my life to raising money from people. When she raises this money, every time she raises this money, she’s making deals. They say, could I be the ambassador to this, could I do that, could I get my businesses taken care of. I mean, give me a break. All of the money she’s raising, that’s blood money, that’s blood money.”

On Tuesday, Clinton’s campaign slammed Trump for spending campaign funds on Trump businesses. The reports showed that Trump’s campaign paid for expenses for the use of Trump facilities and other services, including more than $400,000 to the Trump resort Mar-a-Lago.
