Spielberg, Streisand among those hosting Obama's L.A. fundraiser
President Obama is expected to get some Hollywood star power Monday night at a Los Angeles event to raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
The fundraiser will take place at the home of "ER" and "The West Wing" executive producer John Wells and his wife, Marilyn. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), chairman of the DCCC, also are expected to attend, the committee's website said.
According to Variety, big Hollywood names are expected: "Among the co-hosts for the event are Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Barbra Streisand, J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath. Wells is expected to help bring in a number of showrunners and writer-producers."
The president is expected to land at LAX at 4:10 p.m., according to his schedule.
