The Democratic presidential nominee is in the midst of a multiday, high-dollar fundraising blitz across the country.
After a weekend packed with five fundraisers in Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod in Massachusetts (including one with an appearance by Cher), Clinton is traveling today to California, where she will attend seven fundraisers over the next three days.
Pop icon and prolific tweeter Cher hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Cape Cod Sunday that reportedly raised more than $1.5 million for the Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign.
Approximately 1,000 people attended the “summer celebration” event at the Pilgrim Monument & Museum in Provincetown, including the 70-year-old “Believe” singer, who did not perform, according to the Cape Cod Times.
She then travels to the Hamptons in New York this weekend for even more fundraising events.
The Clinton campaign’s decision to prioritize private fundraisers over public campaign events appears to be twofold.
Hollywood A-lister Jennifer Garner hosted a fundraiser for the Democratic nominee for president Hillary R. Clinton campaign Thursday, Aug. 18th at the home of Benjamin and Penelope Pierce from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
Jennifer Garner, the star of Dude, Where’s My Car? is a active supporter of Democratic candidates. In the 2016 cycle, she donated $5,940 to Act Blue, a left-wing Political Action Committee, as well as 5,400 to the aborted congressional campaign of Democract Melissa Gilbert, who starred in the 1970s TV series Little House On The Prairie. Garner, who no longer uses the surname Affleck in legal filings since beginning the process of divorcing actor Ben Affleck, also gave $2,700 to California Democrat Kamala Harris’s Senate campaign. – Breitbart
