President Obama will attend a fundraising event for U.S. Sen. Patty Murray in Seattle on Oct. 9.

The president will address a luncheon crowd of Murray supporters at the Westin hotel downtown. Seats cost $250 per person, or $500 for priority seats.

Former state Republican Party Chairman Chris Vance announced this month he would challenge Murray, a four-term Democratic incumbent, in the 2016 election.

Other details of the visit were not available Saturday.
