Obama 2012 National Finance Committee meeting in Chicago

| No Comments

WASHINGTON---President Obama's best fund-raisers--members of his National Finance Committee--are meeting in Chicago Thursday night and Friday in a regular quarterly meeting.

This may be the last meeting of the NFC before the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. this September. The NFC is made up of Obama's best bundlers--people who use their personal networks to recruit campaign contributors, almost always at the high end.

The NFC meeting agenda is expected to include briefings by the Obama national campaign brass at the Prudential Building headquarters--and a mapping out of a very aggressive fund-raising schedule with the principals (Barack and Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, Bill Clinton) and big name surrogates.

JUNE 18: Vice President Biden hits Chicago for an event at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse.

JUNE 12: Obama fund-raiser at Harpo Studios with models Iman, Chanel Iman, fashion designer Rachel Roy and Obama campaign manager Jim Messina part of the "Runway to Win" events, tab $1,000 to $2,500.
