Subject: Travel Pool Report #6 -- Arrival at Fundraiser

POTUS has arrived at a private home for a Hillary Victory Fund fundraiser at about 2:40 pm Eastern time.

Your pool is holding during the event. We are advised that there will be no coverage at all of POTUS, his remarks, etc.

On background from a Clinton aide:

*   President Barack Obama is attending a Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) event today in GA.
 *   The HVF is a joint fundraising committee between HFA, the DNC and state parties across the country that was established to ensure the DNC and state parties across the country have the resources they need to help the Democrats up and down the ballot win in November.
 *   Funds raised through the HVF are now being used to fund and staff organizing programs in states across the country that will register voters, recruit volunteers and organize Democrats to turn out and support candidates up and down the ballot. The coordinated campaigns are being run by the DNC and state parties and will coordinate with local, state and federal Democratic campaigns to work to elect progressives across the country.

The Clinton aide notes that the event is taking place at the home of Andy Prozes and Laura Heery Prozes in Atlanta, Ga. There will be about 30 people at the event, according to the aide. Attendees contributed $33,400 to attend, but co-hosts contributed $100,000.
