President Obama Vows At Midtown LGBT Gala To Keep On Fighting For Same-Sex Marriage June 23, 2011 8:29 PM
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) President Barack Obama urged his supporters to recapture their enthusiasm from his 2008 campaign even though he says hes old news.
Speaking to high-dollar donors Thursday night, Obama said he may not be the new, fresh candidate anymore, but his vision for the country is still the same as it was in 2008. Obama spoke at a fundraiser at the exclusive restaurant Daniel on Manhattans Upper East Side.
The dinner fundraiser which reportedly cost over $35,000 per person is one of three money events Obama is holding in New York City on Thursday. Money raised goes to the Democratic National Committee and Obamas 2012 presidential campaign.
The campaign is aiming to raise $60 million in the second quarter, which ends in June.
Separately, the President also spoke at a LGBT fundraiser at Sheraton on Seventh Avenue and West 53rd Street.
Saying he believed the Defense of Marriage Act was wrong and unfair, the President added his voice to the debate still raging in Albany over a bill allowing same-sex marriage.

How can this be true? You wouldn't believe it in a $10 novel.
I will campaign to the group that votes overwhelmingly Democrat and comprises an upper limit of about 2 percent of the nation’s population.
Does this sound redundant to anyone?
