Obama's multimillion dollar day starts in Minnesota
June 1, 2012 — 4:21pm
President Barack Obama's trip to the Midwest could prove quite profitable.
After he addressed a crowd at Honeywell in Golden Valley, the president attended three Minneapolis fundraisers: a $5,000-per-person luncheon with 100 people; a $40,000-per-person roundtable with 20 people; and a $50,000-per-person roundtable with 10 people.
If each person paid full freight, which often doesn't happen, the president could have raised $1.8 million.
He then was expected to fly to Chicago for three more fundraisers Friday night.
According to ABC News, those events involved a $5,000-per-person event for 350 people; a $35,800-per-person event for 60 people and another $35,800 event for 55 people.
If all those attendees paid in full, that would bring in more than $4 million
According to ABC, "proceeds from all the events will benefit OVF, a joint fundraising account that funnels contributions to Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties."
Amid reports that Donald Trump was in danger of not getting on Minnesota's presidential ballot, the Trump campaign says everything is in order and voters will have a chance to cast their ballot for him in November.
