TotT is a daily rundown of campaign events, compiled by Katie Rooney.

Sen. John McCain
(R-AZ) celebrates last week’s official entrance into the presidential race with a fundraising reception in Westminster, Calif. tonight at 6 p.m. hosted by a local assemblyman. But not just anyone can get into this party — it costs $1,000 per person to enter the reception and $2,300 for VIP status.

Here’s where some of the other presidential candidates will be today:

*Former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC) hosts a town hall meeting at Everett Community College in Washington state.

*Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s (D-OH) wife Elizabeth is still campaigning in Arizona: this time she’s in Phoenix for a prayer breakfast at 6:00 a.m., speaks at a march held by Arizona for Immigration Reform at 8:30 a.m., then hosts a vegan fundraising dinner at 7 p.m.

*New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D) is still in Nevada. He’ll have breakfast with Hispanic political leaders at 7:30 a.m., then hold a forum with a local culinary worker’s union in Las Vegas at 10 a.m.

*Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is in Washington, D.C. because the Senate’s in session.
