McCain Looks to
DC Small Donors
John McCain is following through on his campaign's plan to put more emphasis on small-dollar donors as he attempts to revive his lagging candidacy.
His campaign staff has invited supporters to attend "a very special event" this evening. (Click here to see the invitation.)
The event is billed as a "summer reception" honoring McCain and hosted by the D.C. chapter of "YP4McCain Committee." and the chiefs of staff to several of his supporters in the Senate. For those over 30, YP4McCain would be the Young Professionals for McCain. Supporters are scheduled to gather at the offices of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association on Mass. Ave. Tickets are $100 each, but you get a 50 percent break if you buy a block of ten.
Rival GOP (non)candidate Fred Thompson, just days away from releasing a report to the IRS on his "testing the waters" committee's activities, is reportedly planning a Washington fundraiser at the same time. His is reportedly pricier - $1,000 a person and $5,000 for political action committees.
