PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Brace yourself for gridlock today while President Obama visits the area.

The president is coming to 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 Gen 44 is open to people under 40 and members can get in to tomorrow’s event for $250. Others can pay $1,000 or $2,500.

The real money, though, will be made later at the Mt. Airy home of Comcast executive vice president David Cohen. The minimum ticket to that event is $10,000.
