President Obama did not reprise his rendition of Al Green’s “Let’s stay together” in a duet with the famous crooner Thursday, saying once was enough.
“I took a chance at the Apollo and I’m not going to take a chance again,” he told supporters at a San Francisco fundraiser where Green performed the song solo, according to a pool report.
“Now, what is possible is after reelection, I might go on tour with the good Reverend. Be his opening act,” Obama said. “But I don’t want to lose any further votes because of my singing voice.”
AP: President Barack Obama raised more than $29 million for his campaign and for the Democratic Party in January, a strong fundraising month that put him ahead of the pace he set in the last quarter of 2011.
….. The month’s haul raises Obama’s total combined fundraising for this election cycle to about $250 million. In the last three months of 2011, he averaged about $23 million a month.
…. Presidential candidates must submit January fundraising reports to the Federal Election Commission on Friday. The Obama campaign’s full report is expected later in the day.
