Last night in San Francisco, President Obama kicked off a series of eight fundraisers he'll hold across the country this year to raise money for the Democrats in the midterm elections. Sitting president's parties don't historically fare well in the midterms and guests last night paid thousands of dollars for some facetime with the president. 

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Carla Marinucci had a front row seat and she joins us now with more on last night's events.
