Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has been offering donors a chance to hang with the president for months, but today they just sweetened the deal with the addition of George Clooney at his LA home on May 10. “He’s hosting supporters at his home next month to help build support for this campaign and elect President Obama in November,” the Obama campaign wrote in a fundraising email that went out with “Clooney” as the subject line. “And he’s saving seats for two grassroots supporters like you and their guests. It’s just not a chance most people get — well, ever.”
Clooney has had quite a bit of face time with Obama in recent months. The day before being arrested protesting in front of the Sudanese Embassy in March, Clooney visited the White House for a chat with Obama and later a state dinner for UK PM David Cameron. The Oscar winner has also attended fundraisers at the Holmy Hills estate of The Bold And The Beautiful producer Bradley Bell on Obama’s visit to L.A. in February. On that visit the price of admission ranged from $250 to $35,800. This visit with Clooney and the president, whose re-election effort has raised over $350M since last spring, is a little cheaper for potential invitees. “Donate $3 or whatever you can to be automatically entered to win,” the campaign said.
