Political Party Time

Party like it's 9/30/2009

Lawmakers are celebrating today, the last day of the campaign finance reporting quarter, with nearly two dozen congressional fundraisers.

These range from this reception and dinner for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) (with special guests Sens. Mitch Mconnell (R-KY) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA)) to this "Fiesta FUNdraiser" for Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA). This one for Rep. Allen Boyd (D-FL) is actually advertised as an "end of quarter lunch reception."

Interestingly, today is not the date most partied in September. That distinction goes to last Tuesday, the 22nd, when there were at least 43 events.
