Tim Kaine To Begin 2-Day Fundraising Swing Through Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine will be in Los Angeles Monday for a two-day fundraising swing.

Tickets for Monday night’s “Latinos for Hillary Dinner with Tim Kaine” at the home of actress Eva Longoria begins at $10,000 per person. Individuals paying $33,400 – the maximum amount an individual can contribute to a national party committee per year — will have their picture taken with Kaine (D-Virginia).

Those paying $100,000 will be designated as event chairs and be admitted to a reception with other event chairs in addition to the dinner and having their picture taken with Kaine.

A “Conversation with Tim Kaine” luncheon is set for Tuesday in the Beverly Hills area, hosted by Jay Sures, a managing director of the talent and literary agency UTA.

Ticket prices begin at $2,700, the maximum individual contribution to a presidential candidate in the general election under federal law. Individuals paying $10,000 will have their picture taken with Kaine.

Those donating $27,000 will be designated as co-hosts and be admitted to a co-host reception.

The trip will be Kaine’s second to the Los Angeles area since becoming the Democratic vice presidential nominee. He spoke at a fundraiser Aug. 20 with ticket prices of $1,000 and $10,000.

Monday night’s dinner will be the second Clinton campaign fundraiser in the Los Angeles area with a $100,000 price tag in just seven days.

Former President Bill Clinton spoke at a $100,000 per couple dinner Tuesday at the Beverly Hills-area home of Barry Diller, the chairman and senior executive of the media and internet company IAC and travel company Expedia, Inc., and his fashion designer wife, Diane von Furstenberg.

Hillary Clinton had been scheduled to speak at the event, but plans for her to travel to California were canceled after she fell ill at a 9/11 ceremony in New York and it was announced she was suffering from walking pneumonia.

But Democrats are not alone in having fundraisers in the Los Angeles area with ticket prices of $100,000 (or more). Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump held a July 14 fundraiser in Bel Air that included tickets for $449,400 per couple, $250,000 per couple and $100,000 per couple.
