Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is taking advantage of her California roots, planning two major fundraisers this weekend likely to feature entertainment industry heavyweights.

According to a Wednesday Variety report, Harris has been taking advantage of her early announcement to win over Hollywood bigwigs and their deep pockets.

She will also likely benefit from the decision of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) to sit out the race, thinning the number of Californians running (Rep. Eric Swalwell is still making his decision).
