Clooney Fundraiser Nets $15 Million | Talking Points Memo

George Clooney will host President Obama and guests at his Los Angeles home Thursday for a fundraiser that will bring in $15 million, a Democratic source told CNN. The campaign used the event to raffle off two tickets to donors to attend the event. Tickets to the event brought in $6 million, and the raffle earned the campaign $9 million. Clooney has said that the event would be “the biggest fundraiser so far to date-ever” and “double anything that’s ever been done before.”
