Obama Campaign Manager Rallies Finance Team
By Matthew Mosk
Barack Obama's top fundraisers got a sneak peek at some tough new political ads and had their first formal meeting with running mate Joe Biden this morning.
The meeting of the campaign's National Finance Committee -- those who have committed to raising $300,000 or more -- featured discussions with Michelle Obama, campaign manager David Plouffe and finance chair Penny Pritzker, according to several who attended.

Among those present was megafundraiser Robert Wolf, the chairman of UBS Americas.
"The mood was fantastic," Wolf said, describing the briefing by the usually low-key Plouffe as "a rousing speech that really excited the crowd. "
Plouffe previewed ads coming soon in battleground states that focused on the economy and the need "to avoid four more years of the same," Wolf said.
The fundraising task ahead is formidable. Other top bundlers have predicted the combined campaign will need to raise as much as $100 million a month until Election Day to meet its goals.
