WASHINGTON (September 28, 2012)--President Barack Obama was practicing Friday for his first debate with Republican Mitt Romney before spending the rest of the day fundraising in Washington.
Mr. Obama was at Democratic National Committee headquarters for his latest prep session for Wednesday's debate in Denver.
The president was then holding three fundraising events.
The first was at the Capital Hilton, with about 700 guests who paid ticket prices that began at $250 per person.
Mr. Obama was then speaking to about 90 people at the home of Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat.
Tickets cost $20,000 per person.
The final fundraiser, back at the Hilton, was for 200 people.
Tickets for that event start at $2,500 a person.
The money will go to Mr. Obama's campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state Democratic parties.
