Greg, every time I get a chance to spend some time with a supporter like you, it’s a powerful reminder that we’re all standing together, fighting for a set of values we all share. And it’s also a lot of fun.

This Labor Day weekend, I’ll be in New York for a BBQ and I would like to meet you there. When you donate $10 or whatever you can, you’ll be automatically entered for a flight out to join me.

 

If you’ve saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.

Your hotel will be covered too, so don’t let that spoil your Labor Day plans.

I can’t wait to thank you in person for everything you’ve done to help Democrats and me out during these past few years.

Enter today:

Thanks, and I hope to see you there,

Barack Obama
