Democratic vice president nominee Tim Kaine in San Diego for fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Tim Kaine was in San Diego Saturday, August 20 for his first visit to the city since he became the Democratic nominee for vice president.
   
The U.S. senator from Virginia appeared at a fundraiser organized by San Diego lawyer Jeffrey Krinsk and former state legislator Lynn Schenk.


   
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that guests were asked to make contributions of $1,000 or $10,000.
   
Kaine then headed to Los Angeles for a fundraiser the same day, Variety reported.
   
The presidential campaign of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is reportedly stepping up fundraising efforts.
   
The website Politico reported that it obtained an internal memo being sent to high-level Democratic donors, warning them of Republican nominee Donald Trump's July haul of $80 million, more than what they expected. Trump's fundraising should be a wake-up call, the memo said.

The Clinton campaign hasn't announced whether she plans to campaign in San Diego during the general election campaign. The former New York senator and first lady was last here June 2, five days before the California primary, when she gave a speech in Balboa Park on national security.

Former President Bill Clinton also visited San Diego in May, when he held a rally at Balboa Park.
