Hillary Clinton is reporting a huge number, $27 million raised in the third quarter – but has not yet divulged how much of that is primary money, which is the key measurment in gauging where she stacks up against Obama, who announced the raising od nearly $20 million in primary money yesterday. If she outraised Read More
Here's Hillary Clinton's end-of-quarter fund-raising pitch, which makes unabashed use of Bill Clinton — an evening with whom has been offered as a prize to a few lucky contributors.
In the letter Hillary says the results will be used by the media and her opponents to determine her grassroots support.
From the email:

Congressman Joe Crowley of Queens and the Bronx yesterday became the latest official to endorse Michael Bloomberg’s congestion pricing plan. It was announced at a press conference in Grand Central Terminal, where I asked the mayor about another politician whose support he really needs: Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who attended a fund-raiser while Read More
More than an hour into Mike Bloomberg's testimony about congestion pricing at an Assembly hearing today, someone reminded me that the most important Assembly member is at Tavern on the Green, raising funds.
Talk about timing.
Rudy Giuliani is looking to boost his second-quarter fund-raising numbers with a dinner for donors at the Sheraton on June 20, according to a one of the campaign's top contributors.
The minimum ticket for the event is $1,000, and Rudy's key backers are pitching the event as a "great time to impact Rudy's 2nd quarter Read More
If you're free Friday afternoon — and you have $25,000 to spend — you can drop by Tavern on the Green and sponsor a table at Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver's fund-raiser.

De Blasio, along with the majority of the Council, will be term-limited out of office in 2009. He was a key figure in Hillary Clinton's first Read More
Tonight, Leroy Comrie will have a fund-raiser hosted by Christine Quinn and organized by the Seto Group.
Comrie has been talked about as a candidate for Queens Borough President, a position more than one current City Council member is interested in. So this seems to suggest that Quinn’s choice in that race, however unofficially, Read More
I got this invite this morning for Eric Gioia’s June 1st fund-raiser. In an email about it, he also has a “save the date” for a “second annual Beach Party” on July 11 on the Queens waterfront.
It’s almost like he’s planning to run for higher office or something.
Here’s a fund-raising letter for Andrew Cuomo’s June 13 event at the swanky Le Parker Meridian Hotel. What’s interesting isn’t the fact that he’s fund-raising (who in Albany isn’t?) but rather the disclaimer at the bottom.
It’s basically the same as Eliot Spitzer’s self-imposed limit of accepting no more than $10,000 per contributor, way Read More
