The current Democratic candidate for the presidency seems to have been mentioning the former President a lot more lately and they been on the trail together a lot more, and now Bill Clinton is hitting the Hollywood ATM for Hillary Clinton. As a part of a 20-fundraiser multi-state tour, the 42nd POTUS will be in Los Angeles on December 3 for a Hillary for America event for the potential 45th POTUS.
In his first formal Tinseltown trip for his wife’s 2016 campaign, the Big Dog will be headlining the $500-to-$10,000-a-ticket gathering next month. Former Modern Luxury Media boss Michael Kong and wife Stacy Twilley will host the event at the Hancock Park home, according to an invite sent out Tuesday. While no other names are mentioned, some industry heavy-hitter co-hosts are presumed to coming on board at $10,000 a pop for the Hollywood loved ex-Prez – but hey, they get a photo with Bill and a VIP reception as part of the package. Clinton won’t be hanging around long, though; he’s headed up to Seattle for another fundraiser that same night.
Reminiscent of Bill’s “two for one” line of his successful 1992 run, this is all part of the Clinton campaign’s goal of raising $100 million by the end of the year. To date, they have pulled in about $80 million directly — not counting the massive Super PAC donations also coming in and not regulated by primary caps like the campaign is.
A frequent visitor to L.A. since formally announcing her campaign back in the spring, Hillary Clinton was last in town on November 4 and 5 for a series of big-bucks fundraisers. The former Secretary of State raised more than $1 million at an event at Christina Aguilera’s house. The next morning she was the main dish at a breakfast at Rob and Michele Reiner’s home, and later went to the Hancock Park home of NBCUniversal exec Joe Watz and Cynthia Telles, Director of UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute Spanish-speaking Psychosocial Clinic.
Continuing her rounds of the late-night circuit, the candidate also managed to drop by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on November 5. The ex-NY senator is expected to be back in town for more Hollywood cash before the year is over.
