Michelle Obama Visits Utah, Aspen for Fundraisers

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) – First lady Michelle Obama visited Utah on Tuesday as part of a fundraising trip.

During a private breakfast in Park City, the first lady thanked the roughly 250 attendees for supporting her husband and reminded them of his accomplishments, saying it’s “easy to forget what we’ve done.”

The event was held at the home of Mark Gilbert, who serves on President Barack Obama’s 2012 finance committee.

The first lady wrapped up the talk by reminding supporters at the $1,000-a-plate breakfast that there is still “much work to do.”

The first lady had no other appearances during her brief stop in Utah before flying to Aspen for a fundraiser later in the day.

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – About 150 supporters have attended a fundraiser in Aspen for President Barack Obama that featured an appearance by the first lady, Michelle Obama.

Supporters paid $1,000 or more to attend the event at the home of James Crown, managing partner of Aspen Skiing Co., and his wife, Paula.

Donors who paid $10,000 per couple attended lunch at the residence and got their photos taken with the first lady.

Michelle Obama addressed the crowd in a tent in the yard. After her remarks, she walked barefoot on the grass under then tent and mingled with supporters.

She didn’t address the battle over raising the debt limit.
