The 2020 presidential race has a crowded field of competitors, and many are making their way to Los Angeles for fundraisers, rallies, and other events. KCRW is tracking each candidate's visit to LA -- the dates, locations, and significance of what happens. As candidates come through, Jack Pitney, a professor of American Politics at Claremont McKenna College, weighs in on each visit.
The latest: Mike Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor, was at a fundraiser on Jan. 17 for the Democratic National Committee at the home of Lynda and Stewart Resnick, owners of the Wonderful Co. Event tickets cost at least $10,000/person. Bloomberg already spent hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising for his campaign.
