(AP) WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is attending two fundraisers for his Obama Victory Fund, part of a push to attract contributions to the Democratic National Committee and to his re-election campaign.

Obama is the featured attraction Monday at a dinner of Americans in Support of a Strong US-Israel Relationship. The DNC said the event is sold out, with about 80 people paying for tickets between $25,000 and $35,800.

The president also was attending a DNC Mid-Atlantic Finance Committee dinner. About 100 people were expected to attend, paying between $10,000 and $35,800.

The president has been featured at a string of recent fundraisers. He attended three in Miami and one in Puerto Rico last week. He heads for New York later this week where he will attend two more events with donors.
