Will there be any cash left in Chicago after Obama leaves Monday?
The president Sunday will hold what is, as far as I can tell, an unprecedented five fundraisers in one city in one day. He’s in Chicago, passing the hat all over the place.
From the press pool report:
President Obama will attend fundraising events in Chicago on Sunday, August 12.
First, he will attend a small roundtable in downtown Chicago. Tickets for the event cost $40,000 per person. The President will then attend a Gen44 reception at the Bridgeport Arts Center. Tickets for the event start at $51 per person.
Following the Gen44 fundraising reception, President Obama will deliver remarks at a fundraiser at his home in Hyde Park. Tickets for the event cost $40,000 per person.
Following the President’s remarks at his home, he will visit a private residence in Hyde Park for a fundraising event. Tickets for that event start at $5,000 per person.
In the evening, the President will deliver remarks at a private residence in Chicago. Tickets for that event cost $1,000 per person.
Sweet home, Chicago.
Obama has spent much of the day Saturday holed up at his campaign headquarters in the city.
