WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will travel to Houston in April to raise money for House and Senate candidates.
That's according to an invitation to the event obtained by The Associated Press.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California are scheduled to attend. Tickets start at $16,200 a person and go up to $64,800 for a couple. Proceeds benefit the Democratic campaign committees in the House and Senate.
The invitation says the April 9 event will take place at the home of John Eddie Williams, a prominent Texas philanthropist and lawyer, and his wife, Sheridan.
Obama has committed to holding nearly three dozen fundraisers for Democratic groups in the first half of 2014.
