Throw-Back Party of the Day: Mitt Romney’s $25K Little Rock fundraiser

image

Reunited and it feels so good.

One-time fundraising political dream team Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney reunited last night in the name of the viral ALS ice bucket challenge. That’s as good a reason as any for us to head back into the PT Archives and recall Mitt’s glitzy fundraising days of 2012.

Two years ago today, Mitt touched down in the state of Arkansas for a funder in Little Rock. A $2,500 contribution would get you in the door. But those who upped the ante to $10,000 got a photo with the erstwhile GOP presidential hopeful, while $25,000 will get you entry into the “Chairman’s Reception.”

Ready to break bread with Hillary? Be prepared to throw down $10K worth of dough!

Will she or won’t she? Hill-Hill may be taking her time on the question of 2016, but one thing is for certain: the anticipation certainly isn’t hurting her stock. 

The DSCC’s Women’s Senate Network just announced a new fundraiser with Hillary on the marquee. The funder is to take place at Hillary’s own home. And the cost of entry? A cool $10,000… to start.

For the low-low price of $32,000 (per couple), you get *priority seating* at the dinner. If an individual lays down that amount, he or she is also promised access to the DSCC’s “Signature retreats.”

Hello party people! We interrupt our annual August nap for a birthday celebration. That’s right, folks: good old Party Time turns 6 today!

Six years ago to the day, we officially launched - and just look how far we’ve come!

To celebrate, we threw – what else? – a party to mark 6 years of keeping our finger on the political party pulse, collecting invites for all of those receptionspheasant hunts and get-togethers at Johnny’s Half Shell. Last year, we counted a total of 17,807 events in the Party Time database, but our latest check on the numbers shows we’ve now logged 19,631 invites. Whew!

Thanks for sending us all those sweet fundraising invites - and keep ‘em coming! Here’s to many more years of political partying!
