The price for a meal with President Obama has declined to $1.
In an email to supporters today signed by “Barack” and sent by the Obama 2012 campaign in his name, the president says that for just a single buck, recipients of the message can be entered into a raffle to have dinner with Obama along with three other backers.
Here’s an excerpt:
Tomorrow night, we’ll pick the first of four supporters who will sit down with me for dinner.
I’m hopiong you’ll take me up on the invitation . . .
Donate $1 or more today and be automatically entered to win.
The campaign had insisted on receiving $5 from participants in an earlier presidential raffle. The next raffle cost donors only $3 to enter. But the latest contest now appears to be open to the very last remaining members of the 99 percent who might have previously resisted joining the contest.
