Oba­mas hit H Street with ‘Din­ner’ win­ners

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

Pres­i­dent Obama and first lady Michelle Obama broke bread with a group of small-dol­lar donors to his re-elec­tion cam­paign Thurs­day, gath­er­ing for an in­ti­mate din­ner in a pop­u­lar Washington neigh­bor­hood.

Mr. Obama’s cam­paign staged its third “Din­ner With Barack” event at Boundary Road, a res­tau­rant along Washington’s H Street, a once ri­otscarred cor­ri­dor that has un­der­gone a mas­sive re­de­vel­op­ment.

The cam­paign has of­fered meals with the Oba­mas and Vice Pres­i­dent Joseph R. Bi­den to boost con­tri­bu­tions on­line in prepa­ra­tion for the 2012 cam­paign. The Oba­mas sat at a ta­ble near ex­posed brick walls, chat­ting with sup­port­ers.

The Obama cam­paign said the din­ner guests in­cluded: Regina Newkirk, a non­profit ex­ec­u­tive from Nashville, Tenn., and her fa­ther, Robert Newkirk Sr., a pro­fes­sor at Ten­nessee State Univer­sity; Cath­leen Loringer, a for­mer so­cial worker from Wauwatosa, Wis., and her hus­band, lawyer John Loringer; and Judy Glass­man, a re­tired school ad­min­is­tra­tor from Cam­bridge, Mass., and her artist hus­band, Mitch Glass­man.
