By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:07 a.m. HST, Nov 04, 2011

President Barack Obama is expected to appear at a fundraiser for his re-election campaign at Disney's Aulani Resort & Spa at Ko Olina on Nov. 14, sources say.

A 9 a.m. brunch for as many as 300 people is being planned.

Obama will be in Hawaii next week for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference.

Obama, who was born in Hawaii, last held a fundraiser in the islands during his presidential campaign in August 2008. The event at the Kahala Hotel & Resort raised $1.3 million.

Dude... The jury has already returned a verdict on Obama being born in Hawaii. Obama himself voluntarily released the document and the State of Hawaii confirmed it. Enough of your immature conspiracy theory! Time to move on old man...

That's what I was wondering.. so far I couldn't find anything related to an H1 closure on that Monday but most likely they will.. kind of messed up they didn't announce it yet, and even more messed up that it is on one of the busiest days of the week..

On a Monday? A work day? Seriously? I hope they are going to fly him out there on a helicopter. I am one of those Americans struggling with the economy trying to get to WORK to earn a living. The key is GET to work....like on the roads. So the money that he might get from this fundraiser......if he doesn't get re-elected....should be refunded and put to use improving the infrastructure for the State.

The brown stuff will be stuck so hard to the noses of local politicians who attend the Obuma fundraiser, it will take another massive stimulus bill to hire enough people to remove it.

An Obama fund raiser at Disney's Aulani Resort tells me Obama will be coming with his wife, two kids and mother-in-law for another vacation at taxpayers' expense, just like he always does when he goes on "official" trips.

sammysmom I didn't think a socialist like Obama would support a capitalist company like Disney. Is he asking Bob Iger to pay his "fair share" of taxes too?

"Last year, the Honolulu Police Department reports it spent $250,000 on overtime to guard the President and $100,000 the year before that, when Obama was the President-elect. The city has yet to be reimbursed for any of the costs, a police spokesperson told Hawaii Reporter earlier this year." http://www.hawaiireporter.com/president-obamas-million-dollar-plus-trip-to-hawaii-costs-to-taxpayers-detailed/123
