WESTWOOD—In preparation for a 2016 Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton arrived in Westwood on May 7 for fundraising for her campaign in a second attempt at running for the presidency. It was the first of her Southern California fundraisers.
In her video pitch in April, announcing her plans to run for president, she became the first Democrat to enter the 2016 race. After her campaign in 2008, her representatives stated that she will be campaigning in 2016 with an entirely different strategy.
The event in Westwood was a breakfast reception hosted by Catherine Unger in which guests paid $2,700 each to attend. Unger is reportedly a member of the Women’s Political Committee. Clinton later moved to Pacific Palisades to attend a lunch event raising the same amount of money from each guest, hosted by Steven Bochco, a television producer. She later arrived in Beverly Hills to attend a dinner event, hosted by Haim Saban.
The former Secretary of State has made it known that she will be addressing the middle class as she aims to become the next president of the United States.
