Hillary Clinton in LA: 'Jimmy Kimmel' appearance, fundraisers

- Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is set to conclude a two-day visit to the Los Angeles area Thursday by holding two fundraisers for her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination and appearing on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live.''

Filmmaker and actor Rob Reiner and his wife, Michele, will host a fundraiser for Clinton at their Brentwood home. Tickets start at $500, with those donating $2,700 getting to pose for a picture with Clinton, and those who raise $27,000 being admitted to a "host reception,'' according to the entertainment trade publication Variety.

The 68-year-old Clinton will also hold a fundraising reception at the Hancock Park home of Cynthia Telles, the director of the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute Spanish-speaking Psychosocial Clinic, and her husband, NBCUniversal executive Joe Waz.

Tickets start at $1,000, with those donating $2,700 getting to pose for a picture with Clinton and those raising $27,000 being admitted to a "host reception,'' Variety reported.

The maximum individual contribution under federal law for a candidate seeking his or her party's presidential nomination is $2,700. After taping her appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live'' at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Clinton will head to St. Helena in Napa County for another fundraiser.

On Wednesday night, Clinton spoke at a fundraiser hosted by pop star Christina Aguilera and her fiance, producer Matthew Rutler, at their home in Mulholland Estates, ABC7 reported. Those raising $10,000 received four tickets, Variety reported.

The trip to Southern California is the fifth for Clinton since she declared her candidacy on April 12. She held 11 fundraisers and participated in a roundtable discussion with a group of home care providers during her previous visits to the region.
