Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is swinging through California next week as part of a nonstop fundraising tour raking in millions for a super PAC set up to back his expected presidential bid.
On March 30, Bush heads to Newport Beach, where he is headlining a $25,000-per-couple "reception and discussion" at the Pacific Club, according to a copy of the invitation obtained by the Washington Post.
The next day, he will be in Bel Air for a reception and dinner at the home of Maria and Robert Tuttle, who was appointed ambassador to the United Kingdom by President George W. Bush. Other co-hosts include Robert Day, founder of an investment management firm; Brad Freeman, co-founder of an investment firm who was a top fundraiser for George W. Bush; asset manager Ric Kayne and his wife Suzanne; former ambassador to Austria Susan McCaw and her husband Craig McCaw, a cellular phone industry entrepreneur; and asset manager Marc Stern and his wife, Eva.
The minimum requested donation is $25,000 per couple. Attendees who wish to attend the reception and dinner are asked to give $100,000 per couple.
On April 2, Jeb Bush is scheduled to make a stop in San Francisco for a "luncheon and discussion" at the Mandarin Oriental. The hosts include venture capitalist Jay Kern and his wife Katie, as well as billionaire school choice advocates Bill and Susan Oberndorf.
