President Obama Returning To Miami Monday

MIAMI (CBS4) – South Florida is about to get another presidential visit. President Barack Obama is set to return to Miami on Monday, June 13th for a series of campaign fundraisers that will not only raise money for Democrats but also for his own re-election campaign.

Mr. Obama is expected to arrive in Miami in the afternoon. He’ll head to the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts for the “Obama Victory Fund 2012 Kick-Off Reception.” The event is scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m.

Prices start at $250 for a limited time then jump to $500 for general admission. If you want an up-close view of the president, be prepared to shell out $1,000 for floor seating and $2,500 for front row seats. Members of the Young Democrats and College Democrats however can get tickets starting at just $44. You can buy tickets here.

In addition to the big event at the performing arts center, Obama will attend a $10,000-per-person reception at the home of former Samsonite CEO Steven Green and wife Dorothea. Green was President Bill Clinton’s ambassador to Singapore.

Obama also will attend a dinner at the Miami home of Dr. J.P. and Maggie Austin. A check for $35,800 gets you a seat.

The President will spend the night in Miami and depart on Tuesday morning.

    It’s a shame the only reason Obama is coming back to third world Miami is to secure votes by the Hispanics and totally disregard the fact that this is the most corrupt city besides Washington in the country. You don’t need to speak Enlgish, just vote for me!
