President Obama Headlines at the Julia Morgan Ballroom

Date: 2012-06-06

After an introduction by Giants' Hall of Famer Willie Mays, President Barack Obama addressed a packed room full of supporters at the opulent Julia Morgan Ballroom. Attendees included a who's-who of the San Francisco political and business elite, including Governor Jerry Brown, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, Mayor Ed Lee and many more.

Its just a wonderful feeling that I have in my heart a great, great pride (in Obama). Hes the man that we need to be in the White House, said the 81-year-old Mays, wearing a Giants cap and donning a big grin, as he introduced Mr. Obama to cheers and a standing ovation by the 270 guests at the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom in the Merchants Exchange Building.
