1. I read on twitter from reporters there that it was supposed to be

an event for the VA Democratic Party and Terry Mac and others turned it into a rally for Hillary. Not surprised. The Clintons have always thought they owned the Dem Party.

2. Yes, 'annual' fund raiser for the VA dem party but...

Normally held in Richmond but moved it this year to GMU in Fairfax ... Not sure it worked, only 2000 people and report of free tickets for it being given away. Held at rush-hour on a fridaY night ???http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-06-27/hillary-clinton-calls-on-republicans-to-abandon-gay-marriage-fight

4. The media reported it as a rousing success for Hillary. So, not sure if it

matters that VA Dem Party didn't get as much money as expected. I do think the free tickets given away again show that Hillary is having an enthusiasm problem. She's been having problems filling venues at multiple events.

5. you realize that link provided by the op doesn't' say less money' raised than expected

...I don't know how you label that as an 'enthusiasm problem.' 2000's not bad turnout for a paid event; especially one where it's said (on twitter?) that she wasn't expected to appear or the original theme was changed to highlight Clinton.

I think Sanders supporters are whistling in the wind about her support nationwide, basing much of their optimism on polls in a region where Sanders is known and popular. Virginia isn't exactly a Democratic state.

7. Doubtful... State party fundraiser...

With Hillary as keynote speaker. I read Biden did it 2013 with 1000 people but that was formal sitdown dinner, no general admission.
Last night was sitdown dinner for some and $30 general admission for arena seats.
