Hillary Clinton fundraising in San Francisco Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will visit the San Francisco Bay Area this week for two days of private fundraising in the homes of billionaires and big donors.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Wednesday Clinton's three fundraisers Wednesday and Friday are all closed to the public and press.

The former secretary of state's decision to mingle strictly with deep-pocketed donors is in contrast with Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul who visits San Francisco on Saturday for a forum aimed at young voters, the newspaper reports.

Clinton's calendar Wednesday includes a fundraising luncheon at the San Francisco home of Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmental activist and major Democratic donor.

Later Wednesday, Clinton will appear at a fundraiser in the San Francisco home of her longtime friend Susie Tompkins Buell, a philanthropist and co-founder of the Esprit clothing brand.
