President Obama is back to big time fundraising, heading out this evening to a fancy hotel in Washington to meet with a few well-heeled donors who ponied up megabucks to be in the same room with Obama. The money goes to the Democratic National Committee, no doubt for use in the 2014 campaign.
A DNC official said “the event with the president had around 30 people giving donations of up to $32,400,” according to the pool report.
Glad we’re in the age of openness. That could mean anything from $0.00 to $972,000. But I think it’s safe to assume it’s closer to the latter.
Obama “is not delivering remarks,” which is the White House excuse for barring the press. Really? Did he not say anything to the group? Depends I guess on the definition of “remarks.”
