(CNSNews.com) – As North Korea announced it has approved a nuclear strike on the United States, President Barack Obama was back on the campaign trail, raising money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in San Francisco, California.
The first two DCCC fundraising events for the 2014 election cycle had Obama appearing with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and DCCC Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.).
According to the official White House schedule, Obama delivered remarks at a private residence in San Francisco at 9:15 p.m. ET, followed by a second event at 10:55 p.m.
The first event was a cocktail reception hosted by Tom Steyer, a billionaire hedge fund manager and environmentalist. According to the Associated Press, about 100 donors paid a minimum of $5,000 to attend.
The guest list was smaller for a dinner later Tuesday at the home of billionaires Ann and Gordon Getty, but the price was higher — $32,400, the maximum individuals may give to a national party committee each year.
