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