Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will be in Seattle June 1 for two fundraisers. This will be the kickoff of his Washington state campaign.
The first event will cost from $25 to $100 per ticket and the more donors pay the closer they'll be to the stage. That's at the WaMu Theater in Quest Field Event Center. That evening there is a VIP fundraiser a the Westin. That will cost $2,300 for a photo with the senator, or $500 to just get into the reception.
The sponsors listed for the VIP fundraiser shows that Obama, with little experience in Seattle, has already lined up some Democratic stalwarts. The big names include Norm Rice, Congressman Adam Smith, Cynthia Stroum, Matthew Bergman, and Nick Hanauer.
