NEW YORK (AP) - President Barack Obama is urging his supporters to recapture their enthusiasm from his 2008 campaign even though he says he's "old news."
Speaking to high-dollar donors Thursday night, Obama said he may not be the new, fresh candidate anymore, but his vision for the country is still the same as it was in 2008. Obama spoke at a fundraiser at the exclusive restaurant Daniel on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
The dinner fundraiser is one of three money events Obama is holding in New York City on Thursday. Money raised goes to the Democratic National Committee and Obama's 2012 presidential campaign.
The campaign is aiming to raise $60 million in the second quarter, which ends in June.
