Obama campaign raising money for battleground state Democratic parties

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--As the Obama re-election team puts increasing focus on ten battleground states, the campaign is opening a new financial front to raise millions for state Democratic parties in these crucial states.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be in Minneapolis on Monday for a fund-raiser to benefit the Obama 2012 campaign and the Democratic National Committee and the state Democratic parties in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The tab for her event ranges from $250 general admission to $1,000 for "preferred seating" to $5,000 for a guest photo and cocktail reception to $25,000 raised or donated.
