Bill Clinton to headline fundraisers for O'Malley, Mikulski and Md. Dems

Aaron C. Davis

Former President Bill Clinton will headline private fundraisers for Maryland Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, the state's Democratic Party and Gov. Martin O'Malley this month, according to Democratic sources.

Clinton may also star in a get-out-the vote rally for O'Malley and Democrats at the start of early voting, the sources said.

Clinton's first fundraiser will take place this weekend at the home of Mark and Tory Joseph in Bethesda, the sources said. The beneficiary is a joint federal committee established by Mikulski and the Maryland Democratic Party. The proceeds will go to Mikulski's campaign and to the party's coordinated campaign, which is focused heavily on improving early voter turnout later this month.

On Oct. 21, Clinton will return to the state to headline a fundraiser in Baltimore's Inner Harbor for O'Malley. Some details of that event are still being worked out, the sources said, but Clinton may also participate in a public rally that day in the city.

O'Malley was one of the first governors to endorse Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she ran for president in 2008.

The Clinton fundraisers will follow an appearance by President Obama for O'Malley and Maryland Democrats scheduled for Thursday at Bowie State University. Vice President Joe Biden has already attended fundraisers for both Mikulski and O'Malley.

Fact checking the cost of higher education

Comments

The Parents' Coalition is still hearing from parents who are being charged to attend public school classes in Montgomery County. They are being charged "application fees" to apply to magnet programs. They are being charged $50 - $100 for their child to participate in graduation.
It's called extortion.
It's the same as if the fire department came to your door and said we won't be serving your house unless you pay us some cash.
Why is it tolerated in our public schools? These fees are not legal and have not been approved by the legislature.
Democrats have not stood up for the right of children to a free public education in Maryland, it is very disappointing.

Let's all pretend that Lisa Murkowski isn't a shill for the Democrat party...if having Bill Clinton pimping for her isn't clear enough for the voters of Alaska, then they are total fools...
