(CNN) - President Barack Obama heads to Vermont and Maine Friday to help bring in campaign cash for his re-election bid.
The president will be the main attraction at two events in Vermont, one of the most Democratic states in the country, and at two more in Maine, a state then-presidential candidate Obama won by 18 points in the 2008 election.

The four events are the last fundraisers the president's scheduled to attend by Saturday, the last day of fundraising in the first quarter. The numbers are bound to be scrutinized by pundits and political operatives as the 2012 election heats up.
The Obama Victory Fund, which is shared by the Obama re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee, brought in around $45 million in February.
Obama's first stop Friday, a fundraising luncheon in Burlington, Vermont, will be followed by an event at the University of Vermont.
According to a Democratic source with knowledge of the fundraisers, around 100 people are expected to attend the luncheon, with tickets starting at $7,500 per person. Approximately 4,500 supporters are expected to attend the event at the University of Vermont, which will feature a musical performance by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, with tickets for student activists available for $44 and general admission tickets starting at $100 per person.
The president will then head to Portland, Maine, where he'll deliver remarks at a reception at Southern Maine Community College, followed by an evening fundraising dinner at the Portland Museum of Art. The source said the event at the community college is expected to draw approximately 1,800 people, with the same ticket prices as the event at the University of Vermont. Approximately 130 supporters will attend the evening's dinner where tickets start at $5,000 per person.
