Reminder: Obama fundraiser tomorrow

Barack Obama, who last week picked up an endorsement from Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, will be the subject of a fundraiser tomorrow evening (5-7) at the Providence Black Repertory Company (suggested donation: $100; $23 for students). The featured guest is Obama's campaign manager, David Plouffe.

Plouffe, a partner in AKP&D, is touted this way by the Chicago-based company:

David Plouffe is one of the most experienced and successful strategists in the Democratic party.

As executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in the 1999-2000, Plouffe led a focused national campaign that moved a record $95 million to House races across the country, and helped add to the party's membership in the House of Representatives.

Prior to joining the DCCC, Plouffe served as Democratic leader Richard Gephardt's Deputy Chief of Staff in 1997-1998. He joined Leader Gephardt after managing the successful campaign to fill Bill Bradley's seat in the U.S. Senate for Bob Torricelli, the most hotly contested U.S. Senate race in the 1996 cycle.

Plouffe served as the Campaign Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Director in 1995, joining the DSCC after managing a U.S. Senate race in Delaware in 1994 for Attorney General Charlie Oberly against Senator Bill Roth.

Plouffe also successfully managed Congressman John Olver's first reelection bid in western Massachusetts in 1992 and served as a State Field Director for Senator Tom Harkin's Presidential campaign in the 1992 cycle, after serving as the Deputy Field Director in Harkin's successful 1990 U.S. Senate race.

Plouffe joined AKP&D Message and Media in the winter of 2000, and became a named partner of the firm upon returning in February 2004 after serving as a top strategist to Dick Gephardt in his Presidential bid.
