One day after he announced a reversal of his position on same-sex marriage, President Obama heads to the West Coast for fund-raising events in Seattle and Los Angeles.
His first public comments since the ABC News interview revealing his position will come at a fund-raiser at Seattle's Paramount Theater at 6 p.m. PDT. General admission tickets for the event started at $1,000.
Earlier he'll attend a more intimate $35,800-per-couple brunch at the home of a local real-estate executive, according to the Seattle Times.
Washington this year became the seventh state to legalize same-sex marriage, followed soon after by Maryland.
The marquee event on Obama's fund-raising itinerary is an evening event at the Studio City home of actor George Clooney.
Organizers expect the event to gross $15 million for Obama's reelection and the Democratic Party.
An online contest run generated most of that total, with two lucky contributors chosen to mingle with high-profile guests including Robert Downey Jr., Tobey Maguire and Barbra Streisand.
