President Obama to do eight fundraisers for House Democrats in 2013

President Barack Obama told House Democrats Thursday he will headline eight fundraising events for them in 2013, and promised to do many more in the 2014 midterm election year.

Steve Israel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told CNN the president made that promise while attending the House Democrats' retreat.

A Democrat at the retreat on Thursday said Obama told them in a private question and answer session, "I want you to be back in charge of the House of Representatives in the last two years of my administration."

In 2012, when the president was busy campaigning to get himself re-elected, his efforts to help House Democrats win back the majority were virtually limited to recording one robo-call for Tammy Duckworth, who was running for Congress in his home state of Illinois.
