Washington (CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden will be the main attraction at a campaign fundraising breakfast in the nation's capital Friday morning.
Biden will speak to over 200 members of the Turkish and Azerbaijani communities at the Fairfax Hotel, according to an Obama re-election official, who added that tickets started at $2500.

All money raised at the event will go to the Obama Victory Fund, which is a joint fundraising committee of Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.
The Obama re-election campaign and the DNC brought in a combined $53 million in March. The campaign had $104 million cash on hand as of April 1. Obama's 2008 campaign for the White House broke all records by raising nearly $750 million.

Obama's 2008 campaign for the White House broke all records by raising nearly $750 million.
That's nothing! The Obama Administration broke all records by raising the national debt by nearly $5 trillion! In less than one term! This guy is all about the money. ( now logg off and get back to work peasants! We have a lot of debt to pay down...)
$2500 for a $5 meal. WHat a bargin.
Does anyone know if Romney has a ground game in play yet? One that will actually help him? If I remember correctly, McCain's people were all over the country - even before he nailed the nomination. If Mitt's expecting Reince Preibus to pick up the slack for him, it isn't going to happen. What surrogates Mittens does have aren't nearly of the same caliber as McCain's were. They're invisible, too. Which probably fits in with Mitt's reluctance to actually stand his ground on issues until after he becomes president - which of course we know isn't going to happen. Mitt becoming president, that is. Standing his ground probably isn't going to happen either. How a campaign is run is an indication of leadership and from what I'm seeing thus far, Mitt's way, way off base. This farce of a campaign he's heading doesn't pass the first test of competence. Too much CEO in him, I guess. Expecting others to fall in line simply because he says we should.
well im sure Joe will have the good sense not to complaine about the food like mitt did with the cookies. Joe is a regular guy and we love him. Obama 2012
