Obama Raising More Cash To Benefit Landrieu
President Obama will attend his 415th fundraiser since taking office today, where he’ll be adding to the millions of dollars he has helped raise to benefit liberal Democrats like Mary Landrieu. This year alone, President Obama has held 56 fundraisers, including 15 exclusively for Senate Democrats, making clear beyond his own pronouncement last week that he is indeed on the ballot this year in Louisiana.
“Given that President Obama has said his agenda is on the ballot this fall, today’s fundraiser is another reminder that he is banking the rest of his presidency on getting Mary Landrieu and other liberal Democrats across the finish line in November,” said RNC spokesman Ben Voelkel. “It’s as clear as it’s ever been: a vote for Mary Landrieu is a vote for Barack Obama.”
