‘Barack on Broadway’ gets a return engagement
Barack Obama will be joined by Bill Clinton for a fund-raiser at the New Amsterdam Theater on June 4.
It's a relatively low-dollar affair by fund-raiser standards, with maximum tickets going for $1,000 and discount $100 tickets for "Gen44 Young Professionals." (The theater seats right around 1,800 people.)
Obama has reportedly profited from his endorsement of same-sex marriage yesterday, with one local bundler telling me it will be "immeasurably easier" raising money now.
The president is currently on a West Coast fund-raising swing that includes a $14 million dollar trip to George Clooney's home in southern California, and he'll be in New York on May 14 for a well-timed fund-raiser co-hosted by Ricky Martin and a number of LGBT advocates.
Clinton has become a larger presence in Obama's campaign of late, appearing with Obama recently for a number of joint fund-raisers.
