Big-dollar donors in Washington, D.C., are being asked to open their wallets for President Barack Obama on May 16.
DC for Obama informed supporters of a dinner featuring Obama at the restaurant Adour in the St. Regis hotel. Tickets are $35,800, and to be a host, donors must commit to raising a total of $107,400 for the event.
There will be a reception later that night at the Capital Hilton that Obama also will attend. Those tickets cost $1,000 or $2,500. To be a host, donors must commit to raising $10,000.
James Jones, communications director for DC Vote, tapes a "DC Constituents Service Day" sign on the wall as he stands with other DC residents outside of Rep. Andy Harris's office on Capitol Hill to protest Harris' actions against D.C.'s marijuana laws on Thursday, July 24, 2014. DC Vote encouraged DC residents to bring their complaints about city services to the Maryland congressman.
