(Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama is revving up his campaign fundraising in a bid to block Republican gains in the November House and Senate midterm elections that could frustrate the rest of his presidency.
Obama, who some Democrats have complained hasn’t done enough to help the party’s candidates, has committed to appear at 18 fundraising events for the Democratic National Committee over the next five months. In addition, he’ll attend 12 events through June to benefit Democratic House, Senate and gubernatorial candidates, according to an administration official, who asked for anonymity to discuss political strategy.
