So why is that news? Talk about nit-picking. Politicians are always out campaigning and trying to gather up money for there party. BOTH sides do it.

what's with the attitude? exactly where and who pols go to for fundraising is worth covering....each event has its own set of donors and circumstances..
......and .....i amply cover democratic fundraising events, if that's your point.
