Obama to Campaign from Chicago Real Estate Skyscraper

March 29, 2011

The leader of our country will come home next year to work.

It was announced this week that President Barack Obama will set up his 2012 re-election campaign at One Prudential Plaza in Chicago.

One of the city’s tallest pieces of Chicago real estate, the skyscraper faces Grant Park, where Obama held his victory rally in 2008.

The building was supposedly chosen because of the ability to make it secure.

Located at 130 E. Randolph, the office building is about two blocks from Obama’s original campaign headquarters, at 233 N. Michigan Avenue.

The new headquarters is not yet open, but Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, who was the former White House Deputy of Chief, is reportedly already working out of the city.

Meanwhile, President Obama will be in Chicago on April 14 to attend a fundraiser hosted by the Democratic National Committee.

Technically, the DNC is running his re-election campaign until Obama registers with the Federal Election Commission as a 2012 presidential candidate. At that point, the campaign will be allowed to raise money.

Obama brought in a record $750 million for his 2008 campaign. Experts estimate that he could raise up to $1 billion for his re-election bid.

Supposedly, Democratic donors are being told that Obama’s formal announcement stating he will run for another term as president will coincide with that April 14 visit.
