Obama mixes debate preparation with fundraising

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is practicing for his first debate with Republican Mitt Romney before spending the rest of Friday fundraising in Washington.

Obama is 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. Ticket prices began at $250 per person.

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 Obama's campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state Democratic parties.
