(CNSNews.com) â€“ In return for a $5 donation to his reelection, President Barack Obama is offering supporters a chance toÂ participate in a raffle to winÂ a â€œcasualâ€ dinner with him at an unstated location.
In an e-mail to supporters, the president says his campaign will raffle off four tickets forÂ the casual dinner.
â€œWe rely on everyday Americans giving whatever they can afford–and I want to spend time with a few of you,â€Â Obama’s e-mailÂ reads. Â â€œSo if you make a donation today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to be one of the four supporters to sit down with me for dinner. Please donate $5 or more today.â€
The e-mail, which also says the campaign does not take contributions from lobbyists or special-interests, says that â€œmost campaignsâ€ invite high-powered guests to its fundraising dinners. It fails to note, however, that President Obama himself has conducted several high-dollar fundraisers in the weeks since he announced his reelection effort.
â€œMost campaigns fill their dinner guest lists primarily with Washington lobbyists and special interests,â€ says the e-mail. â€œWe didn’t get here doing that, and we’re not going to start now. We’re running a different kind of campaign. We don’t take money from Washington lobbyists or special-interest PACs–we never have, and we never will.â€
Describing the event as a â€œcasual meal among friends,â€ the e-mail goes on to imply that the dinner will be a chance for the president and four lucky supporters to share stories and ideas about national policy.
Winners will receive free airfare and hotel accommodations should they win.
â€œWe’ll pay for your flight and the dinner–all you need to bring is your story and your ideas about how we can continue to make this a better country for all Americans,â€ says the raffle e-mail.
â€œThis won’t be a formal affair,â€ reads the solicitation. â€œIt’s the kind of casual meal among friends that I don’t get to have as often as I’d like anymore, so I hope you’ll consider joining me.â€
