Before formal invitations went in the mail or an e-mail was sent about Senator Barack Obama’s first trip to New Hampshire, some 200 people took the initiative of calling the state Democratic Party and reserving their tickets, according to a party spokeswoman.
Obama will appear at a New Hampshire Democratic Party fund-raiser/celebration for their big wins in the midterm elections. The event is Dec. 10.
For comparison sake, the largest fund-raising dinner of the year for the New Hampshire Democratic Party is its Jefferson-Jackson dinner. That event brings in roughly 500 people, but the cost to attend is usually more than the $25 required for the Sunday afternoon rally with Obama.
