The scoop from Washington

Clinton camp letter to big dollar donors urging $2,300 Obama checks.


The Chicago Sun-Times obtained a copy of the letter the Clinton campaign is sending to its best donors and fund-raisers, asking them to write checks for Obama's White House bid. The carrot: An event with presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) June 26 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington.

From the Clinton campaign....

Thank you again for your efforts on behalf of Hillary Clinton's ground-breaking campaign. We are very appreciative of your hard work and support since day one - you have been there every step of the way and we will never forget your commitment.

As we move forward, we invite you to join us for a National Finance Committee meeting with both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on Thursday, June 26th in Washington, DC to discuss how we can work together to support Barack Obama and the Democratic Party.

Hillary ran for president because she wants to put this country on the right track. She continues to fight and stand strong for our values and priorities and will do everything she can to unify the party and to elect Barack Obama the next President of the United States.

As part of her effort, we are encouraging our supporters to help demonstrate our collective support and strength by writing a check of up to $2,300 to his primary campaign.

I really wish Hillary would not do this. Why does she still support a party that left her and did not stand up for her?
