Bonnie Locchetta, a 44-year old single mother of three, says she's been following Obama since his 2004 speech at the Democratic convention. She donated $25 to his campaign and is one of four donors chosen to eat with him.
Locchetta plans to ask Obama about economic issues, including the cost of college and prescription medications.
The church manager says a lot of people from the small Indiana farming community where she lives will be surprised to learn she's having dinner with Obama.
Locchetta says she was inspired to donate on Monday to support
the Illinois senator. She says she thinks Obama's policies on the economy, the war in Iraq and education make him the best candidate.
