President Barack Obama does not have to run for re-election anymore, but his permanent campaign continues, as Obama will attend fundraisers in San Francisco and Silicon Valley this week to help Democrats take back Congress in 2014.
According to the White House, Obama “will attend two fundraisers for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee” on Wednesday in San Francisco, CA. Those fundraisers will be held on “Billionaires Row,” reportedly at the homes of Gordon Getty and green energy advocate Tom Steyer.
On Thursday, Obama will fundraise for the Democratic National Committee, which is nearly broke, in Atherton, California at two private residences. Atherton is one of the wealthiest areas in Northern California, situated not too far from Stanford University.
As White House Dossier notes, Obama seems intent on trying to take back the House for Democrats in 2014 so he can have two years to ram through every piece of liberal legislation he wants without himself having to face consequences for policies Americans do not like at the ballot box.
