700 Turn Out For Michelle Obama In Jackson
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — About 700 people turned out for a fundraiser with Michelle Obama in Jackson over the weekend.
Campaign officials declined to say how much money was raised for the president’s campaign at Saturday’s luncheon at the Snow King Resort.
Tickets to the event started at $25 and quickly sold out after the first lady’s appearance was announced. The Associated Press reported that most people spent $100 to attend.
People who donated between $2,500 and $35,800 were also invited to a private buffet and were also able to take photos with the first lady.
Mrs. Obama spoke for about 45 minutes, focusing on topics including her husband’s support for health care reform, women’s rights and gay marriage. She also said that the president has kept his promise to pull troops out of Iraq.
