WASHINGTON — Director Spike Lee will hold a high-dollar fundraiser for President Barack Obama next week at his New York home.
A Democratic official says the president will attend the fundraiser for his re-election bid. About 40 people are expected there next Thursday, with tickets costing $35,800 per person. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the event has not been announced.
Lee is the director of films and documentaries including "Do the Right Thing," ''Malcolm X" and "Inside Man."
