Clinton event snags $175,000, pushes Deutch fund-raising over $1 million

by George Bennett | January 19th, 2010

Democratic congressional candidate Ted Deutch’s campaign says former President Bill Clinton’s appearance at this afternoon’s fund-raiser at St. Andrew’s Country Club in Boca Raton raised $175,000 and pushed Deutch’s overall campaign total above $1 million.

Deutch, a Boca Raton state Senator, and former Broward Mayor Ben Graber are running in a Feb. 2 Dem primary for the seat of former Democratic U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, who stepped down this month to head a Middle East think tank. Three Republicans and a no-party candidate are also running. The general election is April 13.

Clinton will speak tonight in Palm Beach at a Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County dinner at The Breakers.

    Was that CharLIE Crist I saw peeking around the door when slick willie was talking this afternoon? I was wondering what CharLIE was doing headed over to the Breakers. Me thinks he’s trying to get in on the going’s on. Can you say RINO?

    What about Deutch’s chief of staff Laxer who worked on Clinton’s campaign…you know the one that Wexler told him to get rid of because she can’t be bought.

    Was she there?

  5. Jeff G Says:

    Ted will take all that money and try to buy into leadership, just like DWS did.

    People of Palm Beach County –

    You are better than this!! Don’t choose the machine candidate; campaign windfalls mean special interest servitude. Rise against the machine!!! Get involved!!!
