Obama to visit Bay Area on Boxer’s behalf

By Josh Richman
Tuesday, April 20th, 2010 at 2:32 pm in 2010 election, Barack Obama, Barbara Boxer, U.S. Senate.

U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer’s re-election campaign has just announced that President Barack Obama will visit the Bay Area next month to attend a joint fundraising event for her campaign and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, much as he did yesterday in Los Angeles for Boxer and the Democratic National Committee to the tune of an estimated $3.5 million.

Per the Los Angeles Times, President Obama and Boxer spoke at two receptions at the California Science Center at Exposition Park, where donors had paid from $100 to $2,500 to attend; they later headlined a dinner at the Museum of Natural History, where tickets went for $35,200 per couple.

No word yet on the date and place for next month’s Bay Area visit, but stay tuned here…

UPDATE @ 2:48 P.M.: This just in from Republican National Committee spokesman Jahan Wilcox: “The jet fumes of Air Force One haven’t even cleared and already Barbara Boxer is begging for an encore. Obviously the internals in the Boxer campaign indicate that she is going to have the fight of her political career.”

    You can fact check this but every race Obama has campaigned (championed) for since taking office the Dems lost (VA, NJ & MASS) not to mention the teams he picked for the NCAA Tournament.

    Not true, unless you’re very selective. Reps. Scott Murphy (NY-20) and Bill Owens (NY-23) both were elected in 2009 and received boosts from President Obama.

    Will Obama address the recents beating of Asians by African Americans in SF and Oakland? Will Obama mention Tian Sheng Yu death or will fail to ignore the Asian Americans who supported his campaign?
