Obama Scoops Up Big Money From Donors

President Barack Obama says the upcoming presidential election isn’t an abstract fight — it’s about whether people will be able to find a good job with a living wage and get health care for their families.

Obama on Tuesday night is raising money at high-dollar fundraisers as GOP voters go to the polls in Florida. He is telling donors they have to make sure voters see the election in concrete and practical terms.

Without mentioning the Florida primary or any of his opponents by name, Obama says Republicans have “the wrong vision for America.” But he says that given the tough times the country’s been through, the fight ahead will be tough.

Obama was speaking at two small fundraisers where donors paid $35,800 per ticket to see him.
