In one night, Corzine raises $2.5 million for Obama and Dem National Committee

Former Gov. John Corzine on Wednesday night raked in $2,506,000 for President Barack Obama at a fundraiser Corzine had for the President at his Fifth Avenue Manhattan address.

Democratic fundraiser Michael Kempner and Corzine confidante Orin Kramer co-chaired the event for Obama, which was one of three same-night New York fundraisers for the president, who’s up for re-election in 2012.

This was a $35,800-per-head mixer, which 70 people attended, according to Kempner.

The same team staged smaller fundraisers later in the evening, first at the Wilshire and then at the 40/40 Club.
