It’s official. President Obama is seeking re-election in 2012, and he’s kick-started his campaign by announcing a fundraising stop at Sony Pictures in Culver City later this month.
The President is set to appear at the April 21 event, which is open to the public. General admission costs $250, but those under the age 40 can hobnob for $100. Tickets can be purchased here.
No Republicans have entered the race against Obama yet—but that doesn’t mean the party hasn’t launched an anti-Obama 2012 campaign (and a GOP donation site, hopeisnthiring.com). “President Obama’s re-election campaign is off and running, meaning once again, the president is putting politics ahead of the work of the people,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said. Presumably without first asking Senator John McCain what he thought of such a strategy.
