President Obama is scheduled to arrive in Seattle Tuesday evening for two fundraising events that are expected to net $2 million for his reelection campaign.

The visit, the president's fourth to Seattle since September, starts with a dinner at former Costco CEO Jim Sinegal's home in Hunts Point. Dinner attendees will pay $36,000. Afterward, the president will speak to 200 people who are paying much less.

Obama will overnight at a downtown Seattle hotel. He is scheduled to fly out of Boeing Field on Wednesday morning.

Obama has already raised nearly $6 million in Washington state for his reelection, compared to Mitt Romney who has raised about a third of that amount in the state.
