Keeping a promise he made to Clinton and her supporters at their summit in Unity, New Hampshire last week, Barack Obama will appear jointly with Hillary Clinton in a series of three fundraisers - one of which will be used to help retire her $21 million campaign debt:
If things work out the way they should, Clinton should be abile to retire about one quarter of that debt at the fundraiser. Meanwhile, Obama will be raking it in for the general election where it is thought he can raise up to $250 million.
Obama campaign spokesman Jen Psaki said the Democratic nominee-in-waiting and Clinton will hold three fundraisers. Two events are scheduled for Wednesday night - one to raise money for his general election campaign and one to help pay off debts from her primary campaign. A third fundraiser, for Obama, is a breakfast Thursday morning with women donors that Clinton, a New York senator, will attend.
The fundraisers will be the first joint appearances by the former foes since their lovefest in Unity, N.H., on June 27.
He should get a good headstart on that this week.
