Many thought that President Obama's fundraising swing through Los Angeles in July would be his final before the midterms, but he'll be back on Oct. 9, for an event at the home of Gwyneth Paltrow.

Tickets for the Democratic National Committee event will start at $1,000 per person for Obama's remarks, with donors of $15,000-per-person also getting a photo and dinner, and donors of $32,400 also receiving a co-host greeting and a name on the official invite.

Polls show that Republicans have a very good shot at retaking the Senate, and Democrats in Hollywood say that it has been a challenge to raise money for the midterms.

"We need the resources to put Democrats in office to move our country forward," said an invite that went out from the DNC on Friday. "Since we do not take money from special interests, corporate lobbyists, and political action committees, we must rely on dedicated Democrats like you."

In his last visit to Los Angeles, Obama also raised money for the DNC at the home of "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes and Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino.

News of the fundraiser was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

Paltrow hosted a fundraiser for Obama in London during the 2012 campaign.

Among the midterm candidates making fundraising swings through Los Angeles is Alison Grimes, scheduled for a Sept. 18 event at the home of Rosalie Swedlin and Robert Cort, with tickets starting at $1,000 per person. Co-hosts include J.J. Abrams, James Cameron, Chris Weitz and Jeffrey Katzenberg.
