Where Everybody Knows His Name

Of course John McCain’s recent trips to the donor-heavy New York area couldn’t just be about giving speeches at graduations.

Ever the coveted fundraising draw, McCain will headline an event this Saturday for embattled Congressman John Sweeney.

The event happens to be slightly farther uptown than usual — in Sweeney’s heavily Republican district in Saratoga Springs, to be precise.

Anyone looking to see the Senator up close — and safely out of the rain — can do so for a contribution between $150 and $1000.
