President Obama to Campaign for Hillary Clinton on Martha’s Vineyard
There really is no escaping the 2016 presidential election.
President Barack Obama will take a brief break from his two-week family vacation on Martha’s Vineyard and speak at a Democratic Party fundraiser Monday evening, hosted Hank and Carol Goldberg in Chilmark.
Obama will stump for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who was once a frequent visitor to the Vineyard during her time as First Lady. Media will not be permitted to hear the president’s answers to questions asked by donors in attendance, the Associated Press reports. Proceeds will benefit the Hillary Victory Fund.
Obama has taken several measured shots at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, calling the real estate mogul “unfit to serve” and “woefully unprepared to do this job.”
Clinton will reportedly attend a two-hour event at the Nantucket home of former U.S. Ambassador to Portugal Elizabeth Frawley Bagley on Saturday, with tickets ranging between $1,000 and $27,000. Obama is scheduled to return to the White House on Sunday.
