Obama courting Dem donors at Washington fundraiser

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is courting 25 Democratic donors at a fundraiser near the White House.

The event raises money for the Democratic National Committee and is being held at a hotel a few blocks away from the White House. Ticket prices start at $10,000 and go up to $32,400.

The DNC says the fundraiser is closed to the press because the president is not making formal remarks.

Obama has committed to headlining at least 14 fundraisers for Democratic congressional candidates this year, some in Washington and others around the country.
