SEATTLE (AP) -- President Barack Obama will be in Seattle area on Sunday to attend two fundraisers for the Obama Victory Fund.
First, Obama is attending a brunch at a home in the wealthy enclave of Medina. Tickets are selling for $38,500 per couple and 100 people are expected to attend.
The second event is a lunch at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle where 300 to 400 people are expected to pay at least $100 each.
Community and labor groups including the Washington State Labor Council and the Puget Sound Alliance for Retired Americans plan to gather at the theater. They say they'll call on Obama to create jobs, protect Social Security and Medicare, and support immigration reform.
