McAuliffe's Packed Schedule

Anita Kumar

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe attended a fundraiser last night at the Hollywood home of Haim Saban, a billionaire entertainment magnate and longtime supporter of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

It's part of a packed schedule that is taking the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee across the state and nation.

Unlike his Democratic opponents, state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds and former delegate Brian Moran, McAuliffe has the national contacts to raise money across the United States.

Check out his schedule this week:

Monday, McAuliffe was in Northern Virginia to talk about job creation, small business support and workforce training. That night, he attended a fundraiser at a Chicago restuarant hosted by J.B. Pritzker, whose family founded the Hyatt hotel chain, and attorney Kevin O'Keefe, a longtime friend of the Clintons.

Tuesday, McAuliffee held an economic roundtable in Lebanon in southwest Virginia.

Wednesday, McAuliffe held an economic rountable in Roanoke. That night, he was in Phoenix for a happy hour fundraiser with the Arizona Democratic Council.

Thursday night, McAuliffe was at Saban's California home.

Next week, look for McAuliffe to begin unveiling policies based on the eight roundtables he held across Virginia.
