This isn't the first Dinner with Barack we've had on this campaign, but it's going to be the last.

With Election Day rapidly approaching, this race will be over before you know it.

Don't miss out on this chance.

If you win, we'll cover airfare and a hotel stay for you and the guest of your choice.

There's nothing for you to worry about -- just think about what you want to tell President Obama. If you ask the lucky supporters from past dinners, you'll know this is an experience you'll be telling stories about for the rest of your life.

This dinner is your last chance to get in on this, and sit down face to face with President Obama.
