Last night's Liberal fundraiser was no different:
Ignatieff Liberals were elated that more than 1,100 Liberals – more than half of them paying $1,000 for elite party membership and a chance to hobnob with the leader at a pre-dinner cocktail party – packed the room, with another 100 on the waiting list.
The tally for last night is estimated at over ONE MILLION. To put that figure into perspective, in one day, the Liberals have raised more for the 2nd quarter of this year, than they did the entire period last year. The fact we raised so much is even more impressive (if that's possible), when you consider another six figures was waiting to get in, if not for space limitation.
By all accounts, first quarter fundraising was up considerably. It would appear the second quarter is starting nicely. Attack away bottom feeders...
