Posted on 06/01/2012 9:52:22 AM PDT by NormsRevenge
President Obama will jump-start what looks to be a major June fundraising push with six money events today in Minneapolis and Chicago - the most fundraisers he's held in a single day since launching his bid for a second term.
Obama is expected to raise more than $7.2 million total for the Obama Victory Fund (OVF), according to figures provided by the campaign.
Flying to Minnesota under the banner of "official business" - an event at a Honeywell factory in a Minneapolis suburb - Obama will quickly turn to politics, lunching with three separate sets of donors at the downtown Bachelor Farmer restaurant, an eatery owned by Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton's two sons, Eric and Andrew.
The president will first address a group of 100 guests, each paying $5,000 a plate. He then will meet privately with two small roundtables of deep-pocket supporters - one group paying $40,000 per person; the other $50,000 per person, a campaign official said. (The $50k ticket price is the largest for any Obama fundraiser held since the start of the campaign.)
Proceeds from all the events will benefit OVF, a joint fundraising account that funnels contributions to Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties. The first $5,000 of an individual's contribution will go directly to the Obama campaign; the remainder, up to $30,800, will go to the DNC; and anything beyond $35,800 will get distributed to state parties, officials said.

What state lies between Chicago, Illinois and Minneapolis, Minnesota? Wisconsin! I am surprised Obama could not find the time to stop in Wisconsin to campaign for Barett.
CHICAGO!!!!!!! What a wonderful city.....
Since 2001 Chicago has had 5056 homicides...
Afghanistan since 2001 has had 1927 Americans killed...
Chicago has the Muslim terrorists beat by more than double.....
Focused like a laser.
It is my understanding that the $50K plate, is a Private Equity Firm. Anyone know which firm? I'm keeping my own enemies’ list. ; )
Here is a question....
How much would you have to be paid to have a private dinner with Obama?
I wouldn’t eat with Zero if they paid me a million dollars
Here is a stat that was released recently by the government...
Each year about 9,000 blacks are murdered. A full 93 percent of these murders are committed by other blacks. Blacks make up 12.5 percent of the total population.
I'd bet good money that Barrett had a say in this, such as, "Please stay away until after the recall!"
What’s the official business in Chicago..............?
So what? Obama doesn't care about black people.
That's why he interfered with a rational business decision and forced Boeing's thousands of Dreamliner jobs to get out of Charleston County, South Carolina (34.5% black) and go back to Washington State (3.7% black).
Then again it may have been retaliation against Congressman Tim Scott (R-Charleston) for the crime of RWB (Republican While Black).
