UPDATED: Jindal Raises Money for McDonnell Tonight

Anita Kumar

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will headline a fundraiser for Republican Bob McDonnell tonight at the McLean home of Dwight Schar, founder of NVR Inc, one of the nation's largest homebuilders.

The event will be attended by about 20 people and is expected to raise about $250,000. For those who need a quick math calculation, that means the guests would donate an average of $12,500.

McDonnell will be joined by Sheila Johnson, the wealthy co-founder of Black Entertainment Television who endorsed him earlier this year despite being a major Democratic fundraiser.

Schar donated $5,000 to McDonnell last year, and was a major fundraiser for Republican John McCain in Virginia last year.

McDonnell has campaigned with former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, Arizona Sen. John McCain, former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. This is Jindal's second trip to Virginia.

Updated: We neglected to tell you that McDonnell raised $100,000 at a breakfast fundraising this morning with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at the Falls Church Marriott.

Anita,

If this is the same fundraiser that I think that it is, it is being co-hosted by Dan Snyder.

Great....

one of these days, people will learn that Americas enemies reside in both ranks (R&D)

The only way to figure it out is to get involved and RESEARCH FOR YOURSELF what the person has actually done in the past, versus what they claim to support.

Without that due-diligence, it doesn't matter if you vote Democrat or Republican...

Ironically Kumar, you are knocking your own fellow Indian who many asians consider as a successful story. Why not give a little praise to your Indian brother ?
