I'm about to sit down for lunch with a few grassroots supporters who are being flown in from Arizona, Maryland, Michigan, and Ohio.

It'll just be me and these four supporters, with enough time to relax and have a real conversation.

I can't wait.

I'm not going to get to do too many more of these before November. That's just a fact.

So if you'd like to be there for one of the last ones, please chip in $X or whatever you can -- and you'll be automatically entered for that chance:

Next time, I could be on my way to meet you.

Thanks,

Barack

If you think you won't get picked to be at the next dinner, you should ask

these folks what they thought about their chances.
