Hassan Nemazee, the Democratic bundler chairing tonight’s Hillary Clinton fund-raiser (featuring Bill) just told me that the event has raised $500,000 for the Senator’s presidential campaign.
Nemazee, whose co-chairs tonight include the prominent fund-raisers Robert Zimmerman and Steve Robert, said that former DNC chair Terry McAuliffe called asking him to put the event together only two weeks ago.
About 100 people are expected to show at the event, each maxing out at $4,600. Enough no-shows sent in checks to hit the half million mark, Nemazee said.
Just like that.
