Former President Bill Clinton will be in Los Angeles in two weeks to raise money for President Barack Obama's reelection.

Former President Bill Clinton will be in Los Angeles in two weeks for an outrageously expensive breakfast on behalf of the Obama campaign — and he’s bringing a new Democratic Party star along with him.

The former president and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, who got raves for his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, will headline an Oct. 8 breakfast at the home of Michael King, whose family ran King World Productions.

For $10,000 a couple can get a photo op and premium seating at the breakfast. Couples willing to spend a bit more — $40,000 — can also get a meet-and-greet opportunity. General admission to the event is a relative steal at $1,000.
