We’ve been there before, a $5 raffle for a chance to have dinner with the President of the United States.
The $5 doesn’t go to the government to help pay down debt, it goes to Obama’s campaign. It’s a way to gin up the “small donor” and total donor numbers, and as before, it comes just before the end of a quarterly reporting period.
Via Business Insider:
Supporters like you are the reason I’m here, and the values we share have always made our organization more than just a political campaign.
So whenever I can, I want to take the opportunity to meet you. Last month, that meant I got to talk to folks in Iowa about small-business opportunities, and sit down with a group of volunteers from around the country who helped build this campaign in their communities this summer.
Today, I want to ask if you’ll join me and three other supporters for a meal and conversation sometime soon.
Please donate $5 or more to be automatically entered for a chance to join me for dinner.
If this sounds a bit familiar to you, it’s because we’ve done this before. In fact, my hope is that I’ll be able to keep doing these dinners throughout the campaign….
But I have a warning to those considering paying $5 for the chance.
Hold out until the final days.
