Obama Paying Visit To Louisville For Fundraiser

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Barack Obama will be in Louisville this weekend to raise funds for his Democratic presidential bid, his campaign announced.

"What we've been having at these events are enormous crowds, and the purpose really is for him to get out there and speak to as many people as possible about his message of changing the way business is done in Washington," Obama press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday.

Obama, of Illinois, will attend a $25 a ticket fundraiser at a downtown hotel on Sunday evening, Psaki said.

On Tuesday, Jennifer Aniston, Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy were just some of Hollywood's hottest celebrities who forked over campaign dollars at a fundraiser for Obama in Beverly Hills, Calif.
