President Barack Obama returned to Denver for a campaign fundraiser on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. About 550 people showed up to the event, paying between $250 and $500 for general admission tickets. It was one of three fundraisers the president attended on Wednesday; he finished the night off in Atherton, Califonria, where David Crosby and Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, and Nash performed at private residence. There were about 60 people at that dinner and tickets cost $35,800 per person. Photographer Christopher Morgan brings back these photos for Westword of the president's stop in Denver.
