But, they won’t be releasing any photos.
Claire doesn’t want to be seen with the far left president this year. She knows how Missouri feels about his hope and change.
The AP reported:

Obama’s campaign has hauled in more than $150 million through September, but Democrats say they will need to compete with Republican-leaning outside groups that can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money to back specific candidates.

Obama’s event at the University of Illinois had ticket prices starting at $44 per person and he attended a pair of pricier fundraisers with tickets ranging from $7,500 for one event and $35,800 per couple for the other.

At the Lincoln Park home of Fred Eychaner, a Chicago media mogul, Obama joined with some financial backers who had supported him since he served in the Illinois state senate. The president said he had stayed true to the vision he had laid out as a local candidate long ago and his agenda as a presidential candidate four years ago.

“The reason I was successful was not because I was a flawless candidate or I ran a flawless campaign but it was because together we were able to give voice to this shared vision of what America should be. And I want you to know that I have kept faith with that vision all these years,” Obama said to a dinner audience that included former Senate colleagues Dick Durbin of Illinois and Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn.

It’s not the first time Claire pulled this stunt.
