President Obama will spend Monday afternoon and evening in New York for a trio of high-dollar Democratic fundraisers including a joint event to benefit Senate and House Democratic campaign arms.
Obama will appear at two Democratic National Committee fundraising events Monday afternoon and a fundraiser in the evening for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The joint fundraiser will mark the second time the president has raised money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee this cycle. With an eye on winning back the House -- which will be a difficult task -- Obama has committed to eight events for the DCCC this year -- six solo fundraisers and two in coordination with the DSCC. By comparison, Obama raised money for the House Democrats' campaign arm just twice in 2009.
