President Obama’s political fundraising swing through Seattle on Tuesday will include a reception at the waterfront home of Bruce and Anne Blume, according to Democratic sources.
The Blumes are major Democratic donors who also hosted Obama in 2012 at their 10,000-square-foot Madrona mansion.
And drivers beware — the president’s itinerary may include a second event on the east side of Lake Washington, potentially causing a giant traffic headache if the 520 Bridge is closed for a presidential motorcade in addition to I-90 bridge work that already is predicted to cause 10-mile backups.
KIRO-7 reports Obama will attend an event at the Hunt’s Point home of former Costco CEO Jim Sinegal. Democratic officials did not confirm that event Friday evening. Additional details about the visit are expected in the coming days.
No official events have been announced as part of Obama’s Tuesday visit, making it a purely political stopover. And it’ll be a quick one. Obama is scheduled to fly out Tuesday for California, where he has more fundraisers scheduled Wednesday and Thursday.
