Hillary Clinton diverts from campaign trail for more fundraisers

Hillary Clinton and family are spending much of April on the fundraising circuit.
The Democratic front-runner will travel to Florida on Tuesday to raise money, headlining three fundraisers in the Sunshine State in the middle of her fight to win the New York primary on April 19.

She attended two events on Monday in New York, one near her Chappaqua home in Mount Kisco, New York, and another on Long Island in Glen Cove, New York. A fundraiser Sunday at the home of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and first lady Dorothy drew around 525 attendees who paid between $1,000 and $2,700.

29. Says it all, doesn't it. Yet we're expected to believe she takes that $$ because she has no choice.

 

WE have a choice!!

2. She's in trouble. The sheep will use the excuse she's raising money for other Dems

 

but that is bullshit and they know it. She can't keep up with Bernie because she can't find enough small donors, which is quite telling.

7. She's not wasting time, she's raising money from millionaires...

 

...and billionaires in Florida, while Bernie is giving a free speech in Vatican City. Good thing he doesn't charge $225,000 or he'd be speaking alongside Clinton (though probably not even so).

Bernie's screwing up by going to Italy. He and his campaign are idiots.

How's he going to get there? Who's paying for the plane?

during the flight. So I guess that can be viewed as a positive comment.

13. Good!! This makes me very happy!

It's going to be expensive to win against the GOP ... AND to make sure the Democratic candidates on down-ticket races are ALSO successful.

I wonder what Bernie's doing to help the party and to make sure down-ticket candidates are more competitive.

34. All these big business and high dollar fundraisers and still

 

can't compete with the fundraising of Bernie Sanders and crew. But the optics are beautiful. She needs to raise big money to compete lol. A person directly benefiting from Citizen's untied is now going to stop Citizen's United. She may even tell Wall St. to cut it out again if the price is right. Oh the hypocrisy of the near left. Do you think Hillary's whopping six million she helped raise is really helping the down tickets that much? Stop with your nonsense, and it is nonsense.

Leaving NY a few days before the primary? What was her campaign thinking?! Whoever made that decision should be removed, post-haste.

26. Yes,...but a trip to the west coast (where, I understand, there are voters) is far less disruptive

Add to which, there's the benefit of raising the funds the Party will need for elections at all levels.

28. She couldn't raise money for Democrats a little ways down the line?

 

She absolutely had to leave New York right now? It had to be this weekend?

I don;t really care what she does. Just pointing out the contradiction of criticizing Sanders "bad campaigning" while giving Clinton a pass for doing the same thing.
