President Barack Obama headed here next month to raise money for Patty Murray

Pres­i­dent Barack Oba­ma will be return­ing to the great Pacif­ic North­west next month to raise mon­ey for U.S. Sen­a­tor Pat­ty Mur­ray and the Wash­ing­ton State Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty, accord­ing to an invi­ta­tion post­ed by the par­ty.

The invi­ta­tion reads:

Fundraising luncheon with President Obama and Patty Murray

Tick­ets start at $250. Tables can be spon­sored for $2,500 or $5,000.

Pro­ceeds from the event will ben­e­fit Mur­ray Vic­to­ry, a joint fundrais­ing com­mit­tee autho­rized by Peo­ple for Pat­ty Mur­ray and the Wash­ing­ton State Democ­rats.

The Pres­i­den­t’s vis­it will result in street and high­way clo­sures on Octo­ber 9th, as will Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi’s vis­it next week. It pays to plan ahead, so leave extra time for your com­mute on the 9th, and pos­si­bly also the day before (Octo­ber 8th).

Typ­i­cal­ly, when Pres­i­dent Oba­ma vis­its the Seat­tle area, he flies into Boe­ing Field, but not always (Paine Field has also been used).

Often, when the Pres­i­dent comes out to the Left Coast, he makes stops in oth­er states, so he may also be vis­it­ing Ore­gon and Cal­i­for­nia next month.

The White House has not yet announced the trip, so oth­er details about the Pres­i­den­t’s itin­er­ary are not yet avail­able. But we would­n’t be sur­prised if the Pres­i­dent swings by a water­front man­sion for a more inti­mate fundrais­ing event with major Demo­c­ra­t­ic donors from our region. Whether the White House will sched­ule any offi­cial events is less cer­tain, but we’ll keep you post­ed.
