City News Service

Texas Gov. and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry began a two-day fundraising swing through California Thursday with a breakfast event at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla.

Tickets for the fundraisers begin at $1,000. A $5,000 joint donation will get two tickets to a fundraiser and the chance to take a photo with Perry.

Under federal law, the maximum individual contribution is $2,500.

Perry, who greeted a crowd at Landmark Aviation Wednesday night after the Republican debate, is also scheduled on Thursday to conduct a luncheon fundraiser in Newport Beach and night events in Los Angeles’ Westside. He will be at fundraisers in Bakersfield, East Palo Alto and Fresno Friday.
