As part of his re-election campaign, President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at Florida based University of Miami. On Thursday Obama will make a speech to faculty members and students alike about his vision of an economy that will be built to last. The President will be speaking at a number of other fundraising functions in Florida during the same week including the Biltmore Hotel.
Obama’s trip to the West Coast last week managed to raise an estimated $8 million towards his re-election campaign. A photograph with Barack Obama will cost about $15,000 and one fundraising event will charge entrants $30,000 for the privilege of attending.
The speech aimed at the Florida students and faculty members is entitled ‘blueprint for an economy built to last.’ and is designed to enlighten people of his ideas to make for a better economy that will continue to grow year after year.
Most of the cost involved with Obama’s re-election campaign, such as travel, security and communications, will be paid for using government funds, but in response to those who think the money could be better spent elsewhere, politics professor and author, Brendan Doherty said; “if we required presidential campaigns to pay for it all, presidents would never leave the White House because it costs so much.”
