President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney will return to the Bay Area on Sunday and Monday -- back to buck-rake once again in donor-rich California.
Romney will appear at two $50,000-per-plate events on Sunday, according to campaign invitations, one at the San Francisco home of Shaklee Corp.'s Roger Barnett and his wife, Sloan, and one at the Woodside home of Tom Siebel.
The former Massachusetts governor is also expected to attend a less exclusive event at a San Francisco hotel before heading south for a batch of high-dollar fundraisers on Monday in the Los Angeles area.
Obama is scheduled Monday to raise money at a dinner at the Piedmont home of developer and real estate investor Wayne Jordan and his wife, activist Quinn Delaney. Tickets were listed at $35,800 per person.
Obama is also scheduled Monday to attend a larger fundraising reception at the Fox Theater in downtown Oakland.
