(CNN) – President Barack Obama will help his party raise money Thursday night.
The president is the main attraction at a small fundraising dinner at a private residence in the nation's capitol. A Democratic Party source tells CNN that the event is expected to bring in around $1 million for the Democratic National Committee.
Obama then heads to a concert at Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall featuring hip-hop artist B.o.B. The Dem source says the sold out event is expected to bring in $750,000 for Gen44, a group housed within the DNC, which the party says is geared towards the "cultivation of a rising generation of Democratic leaders."
The DNC has pledged to spend $50 million this midterm election cycle.

We are proud to have such a hard working President. Go Obama!!!!!!
Gen44!! Right on Mr. President! You might be the first, but you're trying to ensure you won't be the last!!
Great vision while rebuilding our foundation on ROCK not SAND!
What's different between Thursday night and Wednesday night and Tuesday night and most any other night Obama has spent since becoming President.
I think the news story would really be when Obama takes a night off from campaigning. But like I said before...every minute Obama spends campaigning is another minute he's not growing the Federal Government or spending our great grandchildren's money on things we don't need that don't work anyway.
So Obama thinks it's more important to spend his time raising funds for his party than fixing the unemployment in this country.While he's out partying it up with his rich friends soldiers are dying in Afghanistan and he's the only person that can bring them home.And people wonder why he's lost his popularity and the media go on drinking the kool-aid.
"That is a fraction of what the Koch brothers, Valero, and Tesero have spent to make sure we stay dependent on fossil fuels."
Not to mention what Wall Street banks and financial institutions have spent trying to keep us dependent upon consumer debt products from which they create securities (then derivatives and hedge funds). Function indentured servitude is THE name of the game.
edit...that should have read "functional indentured servitude"
