LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Yerington woman says President Barack Obama
doesn't mind sharing his fries during a lunch date.
Kathleen Toigo says Obama offered to share his lunch order and teased her for ordering a salad during an hour-long lunch in Washington D.C., last week.
The Las Vegas Sun reported Tuesday that Toigo won the lunch with Obama after she made a $10 donation to his re-election campaign.
She was one of four people selected to have lunch with the president on Friday.
The "Dinner with Barack" events have been held three times and are a campaign-building tool for the president.
Toigo says eating lunch with Obama was "like winning the lottery."
She plans to campaign for him this year, just as she did in 2008.
