PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Brace yourself for motorcade traffic, tomorrow. President Obama will be in town as part of his 2012 presidential campaign.
The president is visiting Philadelphia to raise money for the 2012 campaign and will be attending two events, the first in Center City at 3:30 p.m.
The reception at the Bellevue on South Broad Street is sponsored by Gen44, the Obama campaign’s effort to tap young professionals for donations. Membership in Gen44 is open to people younger than 40 and members can get in to tomorrow’s event for $250. Others can pay a thousand or $25-hundred.
The real money, though, will be made later at the Mt. Airy home of Comcast executive vice president David Cohen. A select few will get to dine with the president — for a minimum of $10-thousand a head and a maximum of $35-thousand.
The rest of us will be treated only to the inevitable traffic jams that will accompany the president’s motorcade and a demonstration planned on South Broad Street by advocates of immigration reform.
