Dems Divided: Hillary Clinton and DNC Chair are Fundraising Against Each Other

Hillary Clinton will be hosting a $10,000 per person fundraiser in New York City for her 501(c)4 “dark money” group, Onward Together, on April 30th at the exact same time that Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez will be hosting a discussion at a prominent New York City law firm, which will likely involve Perez asking for cash.

The New York Post reported:

“With great fanfare, Clinton announced in an email to her 2016 supporters that she is launching the Onward Together Leadership Council and that they could become charter members — in return for coughing up at least $10,000.”

The email states, “Charter members . . . are an esteemed network of supporters who pledge to contribute $10,000 and up. Members will receive updates, briefings and invitations.

Meanwhile DNC Chair Perez will be speaking at Manhattan law firm, Kramer Levin, about the upcoming midterm elections.

The DNC has said that Perez’s event will not be a fundraiser but that “there would likely be a follow-up cash ask.”

Perez will probably need to do that follow-up “cash ask” given how much the DNC has struggled to raise money under Perez’s leadership.

“It will be interesting to see who goes to Hillary and who goes to Tom,” a Democratic insider told The New York Post.

Clinton was recently the cause of much controversy for the Democratic Party following remarks she made during a recent trip to India regarding Trump voters.
