Obama seeks to take a $ bite out of the Big Apple

Obama attends four fundraisers in New York Monday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, dropped in on Sen. Hillary Clinton's, D-New York, home turf Monday, scheduling four fundraisers in the Big Apple and an appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman."

Obama and Clinton are both vying for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Bob Pittman, one of the chief founders of MTV and former AOL chief operating officer, and Kenneth Lerer, formally AOL's communications head and the co-founder of the liberal blog, are among those hosting a reception for the Illinois Democrat on Monday.

Frank Weil of Abacus and Associates, investment banker Steven Gluckstern, and George Hornig, managing director of Credit Suisse Private Equity, are also hosting fundraisers for Obama.
