Q One more on fundraising. The President is doing five events, I believe, in three days. Can you just speak to that a little bit? Does this sort of set the tone in terms of his political intentions in raising money?
MR. FRATTO: He’s certainly committed to going out and raising money for the party and Republican candidates, and so you’ll see him doing a lot of this. This will be I think a very successful trip in terms of raising money.

Q Why are all the fundraisers closed to the press?
MR. FRATTO: I think we have — sometimes we have fundraisers that are open, some — these are in private residences, I believe. Yes, private residences are closed, and — I don’t know. I don’t actually — never really knew the reason — (laughter) — but I’m happy with the practice. (Laughter.)
