Newsmaker: Obama raises millions in S.F.

Barack Obama raked in $7.8 million Sunday at three separate fundraisers in San Francisco, telling a VIP dinner crowd — many of whom paid $14,250 a head to attend — that he would win the presidency in November but to expect a tough battle with Republicans in the meantime.

The sold-out functions were held at the Fairmont Hotel on Mason and California streets and attended by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Anna Eshoo, Rep. Barbara Lee and San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, among many others. Entertainment was provided by rocker Jackson Browne.
