NASHVILLE--Oprah Winfrey joins the lineup for an Obama fund-raising weekend in Chicago aimed at female donors at the $2,300-per-person event starting Friday.
Winfrey, Obama's pal, attended the Democratic convention, stumped in key primary states for Obama and threw a fund-raiser for him at her California estate. I think this is her biggest high profile appearance for Obama to date for the general election.
The event is organized as an "issues conference" and features Barack and Michelle Obama, Joe and Jill Biden, as well as Winfrey and other luminaries from the Obama team.
From the invitation....
This weekend, please join Barack and Michelle Obama, Joe and Jill Biden, and special guest Oprah Winfrey at the National Women's Leadership Issues Conference in Chicago.
Come hear about the importance of women's leadership and the women's vote, and learn about Barack's vision for creating the kind of change we need.
