Obama heading to Miami for DNC fundraiser

President Obama is heading to Miami this week to raise funds for the Democratic National Committee, the latest in what's been a fundraising-heavy schedule for the president.

The Wednesday night event will be held at the home of philanthropist Joseph Blount, who donated more than a quarter-million dollars to Democratic candidates last election cycle.

Tickets for the sold-out event start at $1,000 apiece, according to the Miami Herald. This is the latest of many fundraising trips Obama has made for the DNC in recent weeks; he stopped off in Santa Monica last Friday to raise money for the committee as well.
