Bon Jovi Raises $3 Million For Obama

Rocker Bon Jovi held a fund-raiser at his New Jersey home that brought in a whopping $3 million for presidential candidate Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee, the New York Post reports.

About 100 people attended the event Friday at Bon Jovi's mansion in Middletown, NJ, paying about $31,000 each to mingle with the singer and other Democratic supporters, the Post said.

Obama gave a brief speech at the gathering, saying he will stand up to any dirty campaign tactics by the Republicans. "We're not going to be bullied, we're not going to be smeared," he said.
