BURLINGTON, Vt. — President Barack Obama is raising campaign cash in reliably Democratic Vermont, calling this year's presidential race a "clarifying election" that will determine what the country stands for.
Obama spoke at a $7,500-per-person luncheon fundraiser Friday. He said that while the general election would be a "healthy debate" for the country, he believes Republicans are peddling a "fundamentally different vision of America."
The president also was holding a large fundraising rally at the University of Vermont and traveling later in the day to Portland, Maine, for a fundraising reception and a dinner.
Obama's four events are his last fundraisers before Saturday's monthly and quarterly campaign fundraising deadline. The president raised $45 million last month for his re-election.
