Hillary Clinton To Fundraise In La Jolla
The 67-year-old former secretary of state, senator and first lady is on a four-day, five-state fundraising trip that began Tuesday with events in Colorado in Aspen and Denver. Her itinerary included Park City, Utah; Portland, Oregon; and in California — Atherton, San Francisco and Los Angeles, according to the website PoliticalPartyTime.org, which tracks political fundraisers.
After the event in La Jolla, Clinton is scheduled to fly to McAllen, Texas.
The ticket prices for what the campaign is billing as a "Conversation with Hillary" are $1,000 and $2,700, the maximum individual contribution for a candidate seeking his or her party's nomination under federal law.
Irwin Jacobs was a major financial backer of President Barack Obama's presidential campaigns. According to Politico.com, Jacobs contributed more than $2 million to super PACS that supported Obama in 2012, and $23,000 directly to Obama and the Democratic Party.
This will be Clinton's first visit to San Diego since she declared her candidacy. She was last in town in June 2014, when she signed copies of her book, "Hard Choices," and later spoke at a biotech conference.
