Obama turns to tech leaders for cash for Democrats

U.S. President Obama is introduced to speak by Yahoo CEO Mayer at a DNC fund raiser in San JoseBy Steve Holland SAN JOSE, California (Reuters) – President Barack Obama warned tech leaders on Thursday to dig deep in their wallets to fund Democratic candidates and feel a sense of urgency about congressional elections in November or risk further gridlock in Washington and a failure to move on their priorities. Obama was the headline speaker at four California fund-raising events, raising his two-day total to five. During his remarks, Obama struck at the heart of the issue that Republicans are using against Democrats in their campaigns: The Affordable Care Act, the Obamacare law whose troubled rollout has given Obama’s political opponents much grist for criticism. Republicans have mounted a strong effort to seize control of the Senate from Democrats and are also trying to build on their majority in the House of Representatives.
