Tickets for the event Monday in Weinstein’s five-story West Village home ranged from $16,200 to $20,000
It was Harvey Weinstein and President Obama again Monday.
Weinstein, a longtime backer of the president, is hosting one of three Democratic fundraisers in New York with Georgiana Chapman that feature comments by the president.
Weinstein has his name on one of two of the events sponsored by the Democratic National Committee in private homes, the White House said. Tickets for the event in Weinstein’s five-story West Village home ranged from $16,200 to $20,000.
Some 65 people showed up, including Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Tommy Hilfiger.
Obama spoke for about nine minutes about taking a longer-term approach to fixing issues in the second term.
After the second of the private home events, Obama is to speak at a bigger fundraiser for the Democratic Senate and House campaign committees Monday night.
