LAS VEGAS, May 26 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama heads west Tuesday for a series of fundraisers, including a stop in Las Vegas on behalf of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

The star-studded event -- Bette Midler and Sheryl Crow are scheduled to perform -- shows both Reid's clout and potential vulnerability in the 2010 midterm elections, White House Cheat Sheet said.

The fundraiser for Reid is the fourth such event Obama has done for the Democratic Party. Obama raised money for the Democratic National Committee in March in Washington and Indiana, where he also raised money for four Indiana House of Representatives members.

President Obama can't even sell out a fundraiser in Las Vegas. There are still tickets available and this inlcudes the "cheap seats" for $50. Want to meet the President, back stage passes are only $1250 and there are plenty of them left as well!!!

The Prez will even be staying overnight at one of those evil casino hotels!

The President helped raise 2M for Reid.

I wonder what this trip cost the taxpayers?
