Daily Kos: Six Governors for Obama raise money in DC
Excerpted from this post at Daily Kos
With Arizona's Janet Napolitano in front, behind her you see Chet Culver of Iowa, Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, Chris Gregoire of Washington, Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas, and Jim Doyle of Wisconsin. In town for the National Governor's Association, they took time after a Democratic Governor's Association event for a dessert fundraiser at the Capitol Hilton in DC ... This event was organized on short notice by the MidAtlantic Finance Committee of Obama for America, several of whose members I know. Originally scheduled as a high-end event ($1,000 and up), near the end there were some people admitted for as "little" as $500. While I do not know the take for the night, there were over 120 people preregistered, and perhaps one or two dozen who registered at the door. Remember, this was an event done on short notice, without the presence of the candidate. For point of comparison on fundraising, the Clinton campaign recently held 3 events in New York with HRC for which the total was about $500,000.
