NEW YORK — President Barack Obama was in New York to collect some cash for Democrats and enjoy a rare father-daughter weekend in the city with his daughters.
Obama was headlining a Democratic fundraiser Friday night hosted by businessman George Logothetis and his wife, Nitzia. About 30 supporters were contributing up to $33,400 each.
Then, with the politics out of the way, the rest of Obama's New York overnighter was set aside for time with teenage daughters Malia and Sasha.
Malia, who is 17, was spotted earlier this summer in Brooklyn, on the set of HBO's "Girls," where she reportedly was interning. Sasha is 14.
The president rarely stays overnight in New York unless he's there for business, such as the U.N. General Assembly. He's due back in Washington on Saturday night.
