Obama attended his first two fundraising events of his presidency last night. At first glance, the haul seems pretty good . . .
Tickets at the first fundraiser of the evening, held at the National Women in the Arts Museum, sold for $30,400 per couple.
The Warner Theater tickets in contrast sold for between $100, 200, 250, 1000 and 2500. With 150 attendees at the first event and 2000 at the second, the President brought in $3 million for his party.
Until you realize that the night before, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal appeared in a NRCC fundraiser the previous night and raised . . . more than $6 million.
My theory is that the donations at the GOP dinner were higher because of the man who introduced Jindal . . . Hugh Hewitt.
