President Obama, who is coming to Massachusetts Wednesday to give a graduation address at Worcester Technical High School, will also be raising money in Weston for the arm of the Democratic Party scraping to keep control of the US Senate in this year’s midterm elections.
Obama is set to headline a Wednesday dinner in Weston benefiting the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, according to an invitation for the event obtained by the Globe. Both of the state’s senators, Elizabeth Warren and Edward J. Markey, are scheduled to attend the dinner, held at the Weston home of Joanne and Paul Egerman, two big Democratic donors.
Also slated to attend: Senator Michael Bennet of Colorado, the chairman of the committee, known in acronym-heavy Washington circles as the DSCC.
Tickets to the event, which include dinner and a photo, run a hefty $32,400 per person, according to the invitation.
Governor Deval Patrick will also attend the event, according to a DSCC official.
