Who's picking up the tab? 4 Obama campaign donors chosen to have dinner with the president
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Two retirees, a U.S. Postal Service worker and a business owner from politically important Midwest and Southwestern states who gave money to President Barack Obama's re-election campaign will get a chance to bend his ear at dinner Thursday.
Obama's re-election effort dangled dinner with the president as part of a promotion to boost campaign contributions during the April-to-June fundraising quarter. The campaign reported raising more than $47 million during those three months.
The donors he's dining with are from Arizona, Colorado, Indiana and Minnesota ' states important to his re-election hopes. Obama won three of the four in 2008, losing only in Arizona.
Dinner is set for a still-undisclosed location in Washington.
