Hillary Clinton In Los Angeles Today For Three Fundraisers:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to launch "Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Hillary" today and conduct three fundraisers for her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Clinton is set to be joined at the launch event in San Gabriel by Rep. Judy Chu, D-Monterey Park, and dozens of Asian American and Pacific Islander elected officials and community leaders from across the nation, according to her campaign.

She will discuss what’s at stake in the election for the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities and how she’ll fight for them as president, the campaign said.

Clinton will then speak at a luncheon fundraiser hosted by Chu, the chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.     

"While the RNC has for years been focused on engaging our nation’s growing AAPI communities, Hillary Clinton’s recent AAPI interests are for her own political fundraising benefit," said Ninio Fetalvo, the Republican National Committee’s Asian Pacific American press secretary.

"The reality is Democrats have long taken the AAPI community for granted and Hillary Clinton will be no different as she continues to support the same failed policies that hurt AAPIs across the country."

Clinton today will also conduct what is billed as a "family celebration" at the Jim Henson Co. studio lot in Hollywood.

Tickets are priced at $500. Individuals donating $1,000 will receive one adult ticket and a ticket for a individual under 16 years old. Donors contributing $2,700 will receive one adult ticket and two tickets for individuals under 16 years old, according to information posted on the website PoliticalPartyTime.org which tracks political fundraisers.

The maximum individual contribution under federal law for a candidate seeking his or her party’s presidential nomination is $2,700.

Clinton will be joined by Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett at an evening reception at the L.A.-area home of City National Bank Chairman and CEO Russell Goldsmith and his wife, Karen.

Tickets are $2,700, according to an invitation obtained by City News Service. Individuals raising $10,000 will be co-hosts of the event and have a photo taken with Clinton.

At a town hall event Tuesday in Sioux City, Iowa, Clinton described Buffett as "my favorite billionaire because he says tax me more."

The trip to Southern California will be the sixth for the 68-year-old Clinton since she declared her candidacy on April 12. She held 14 fundraisers, participated in a roundtable discussion with a group of home care providers and appeared on the ABC late-night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live" during her previous visits to the region.

The Clinton campaign announced last week it had raised more than $112 million for her primary campaign in 2015, what it described as "a record for the best off-year fundraising of any non-incumbent in history."

More than 60 percent of the donors were women.

The campaign raised $37 million in the year’s final three months for its primary efforts, another $1 million for the general election and $18 million for the Democratic National Committee and state party organizations. Ninety- four percent of the period’s donations were in increments of $100 or less.
