Michelle Obama visiting Boston Tuesday for husband’s final local campaign fund-raisers
Michelle Obama will visit Boston on Tuesday for a pair of fund-raisers benefitting her husband’s reelection campaign.
The first lady will attend a $20,000-per-head roundtable discussion at Via Matta restaurant across the street from the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, followed by a low-dollar event with a bigger crowd at the Park Plaza Castle.
Tickets for the “Taste of Boston” event - which will feature foods from local chefs including Will Gilson of the Herb Lyceum, Jody Adams of Rialto and Trade, and Gordon Hamersley of Hamersley’s Bistro - range from $250 per person to $2,500.
Hamersley hosted President Obama at his South End restaurant in June for his own fund-raising roundtable. The president then went on to a bigger event at Symphony Hall.
Michelle Obama’s visit - the last to Boston by a campaign surrogate before Election Day - comes as her husband’s campaign targets the neighboring swing state of New Hampshire.
The president will visit there on Saturday, while Vice President Joe Biden will campaign there on Monday.Glen Johnson can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @globeglen.
