Obama coming for Specter fundraiser at Convention Center

President Obama will attend a Sept. 15 fundraiser for Sen. Arlen Specter at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, according to an e-mail Comcast executive David L. Cohen sent supporters today. The event which Mayor Nutter, Gov. Rendell and Specter will attend features a $1,000 cocktail reception, another VIP reception for those who raise at least $10,000 and a dinner for which “an individual must write (not raise) a minimum of $10,000 or raise $50,000” to attend, Cohen’s note says. The missive instructs guests to make checks payable to Pennsylvania Senate Victory 2010 and promises all dinner guests will have a picture taken with Obama and Specter. “Thanks to your incredible effort and generosity, we are well on our way to our $2.5 million event goal. So far, we have more than $600,000 in hand and more than $700,000 in additional firm commitments. But we still have a lot of work to do,” Cohen writes.
