California Democrat Attending “Swanky Fundraiser”
Fresh off attending two D.C. fundraisers, Politico reports that California Democrat Ami Bera is holding a “swanky fundraiser” at a Sacramento law firm tonight. Bera has received over $400,000 from lawyers and law firms throughout his political career.
Unions are holding back their support for Bera’s campaign this cycle after he supported a free trade bill, and other California Democrats like Senator Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Brad Sherman have distanced themselves from Bera.
That puts Bera in a tough spot as he tries to get money from anywhere he can for his tough re-election bid.
