Obamas hit H Street with ‘Dinner’ winners
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.
