Michelle Obama headlining Saturday fundraiser in Denver
DENVER – Two days after President Obama wrapped up a two-day swing through Colorado, First Lady Michelle Obama will host a campaign fundraiser in Denver Saturday night.
With the Obama campaign lagging behind Republican Mitt Romney in July’s fundraising numbers for a third straight month, the Obama campaign is dispatching perhaps its most popular asset as part of its ongoing efforts to keep the money race close.
Michelle Obama, whose popularity far exceeds her husband’s, is attending a fundraiser in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Saturday afternoon and then traveling to Denver for an event Saturday night.
She won’t be holding any public events in Colorado on this short visit; and the fundraiser itself is closed to the press.
From Colorado, the First Lady will travel to Los Angeles for two campaign fundraisers Sunday and an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
