It turns out that when it comes to Chicago fundraisers, Chelly-O’s events actually will run you more money than Barack’s:
Tickets to mingle with the first lady are selling for 50 percent more than a similar event with the commander-in-chief. President Obama hosted a cocktail reception for Illinois Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias at the Drake hotel in Chicago the other night with tickets starting at $500. But at a fund-raiser for Giannoulias hosted by Michelle Obama this Wednesday at the University Club of Chicago, tickets start at $750.
Hopefully Michelle’s popularity can rub off on Barack, because we need him to get a second term!
