Hat tip to our friends at OC Weekly, but welcome news that President Barack Obama is coming to Orange County and Newport Beach for a fundraiser.
The President comes to OC on February 16 according to OC Weekly; from the story: “Count Jeff and Nancy Stack among them. Having already given the legal limit of $10,000 to the Chosen One, they are hosting the Feb. 16 benefit for the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in their sprawling, ocean-view home. He’s managing director of the Sares-Regis Group development company in Irvine. She heads the nonprofit Cystinosis Research Foundation.”
Obama came to Newport Beach for a fundraising trip during the 2008 race. And he hosted a Town Hall on Healthcare in Costa Mesa at the PC Fairgrounds in March 2009.
Through the end of 2011, Obama hauled in $130 million in campaign contributions — more than all his Republican opponents combined.
