Question of the Day
Perry seeks comeback with Iowa evangelicals
Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry — with nowhere to go but up — is making an aggressive play to rise in Iowa by courting Christian evangelicals who could help revive his campaign.
The Texas governor on Wednesday started a monthlong, $1.2 million ad campaign in the leadoff caucus state. He plans to spend more than $650,000 this week on an ad saying President Obama is waging a “war on religion” and promoting Mr. Perry’s Christian faith.
The ad, also running on national cable channels, serves as a contrast to both rivals Mitt Romney, a Mormon, and Newt Gingrich, a Catholic convert, as Mr. Perry makes a big play for Christian evangelicals who are lukewarm to both opponents.
Mr. Perry also planned a bus tour of South Carolina on Thursday.
Obama raises money for re-election bid
President Obama is meeting with a small number of donors at a fundraiser to benefit his re-election bid.
Democratic Party officials say about 20 people are expected to attend the fundraiser at a downtown Washington hotel. Tickets are $35,800 a person and the money will go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising account by the Democratic Party and Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign
The White House says the event will be closed to the media because the president does not intend to make formal remarks.
Mr. Obama has raised more than $150 million through the end of September for his campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
