PT Round-up: Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov. Chris Christie headline fundraisers in South Carolina; Obamas and Hillary Clinton party in D.C.; Rep. John Boehner’s backyard BBQ

Party animals, welcome to another jam-packed week of political fundraising! Know how we know midterms are approaching? This week’s social calendar is overflowing with politicos bellying up to the (campaign cash) bar. Aside from the usual juicy tidbits from the party circuit, the last few weeks have been rather exciting. First, there was news of that men-only fundraiser for Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Fla., which (a) lit up social media, and (b) proved that you can’t make this stuff up. Then, our friends at the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting launched the first state-level collaboration with Party Time, complete with ...

Welcome to the party, Maine! Political Party Time kicks off first state-based collaboration

Political Party Time makes no secret of wanting to get the low down on as many parties as possible. So we absolutely love it when others partying aficionados jump in to scout out the 411 on far-flung festivities. And so we are extra excited to welcome Maine to the Political Party Time family! The good folks at the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting are PT’s first local partner in our never-ending endeavor to uncover the who, what, when and where of political fundraising. The Maine-specific project launched yesterday, and senior reporter Naomi Schalit has a fantastic and comprehensive roundup ...

PT Round-up: Clintons, Obamas come out for Democratic Senate candidates, Michelle Nunn parties with Usher, and a birthday fundraiser for Gov. Chris Christie

Party people, for months now we’ve been anticipating a fall season bursting at the seams with political fundraisers. And here we are, in the second full week of September, with a jam-packed social calendar. This week, D.C.-based partying is back in full swing after the traditional emptying out of Capitol Hill during August, which saw plenty of on-the-road fundraising. Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., is one politician taking advantage of D.C.’s summertime-in-September weather, throwing a fundraiser at Nationals Park during Tuesday night’s Nats-Braves matchup. It’s a popular party spot, but usually it’s to watch your home team take on the Nats ...

PT Round-up: Obamas! Biden!! Bourbon!!! Deadheads!!!! But where, oh where are the Republicans?

Hello party people! We’ve got another busy week of political parties on the books over here at Party Time. But, as has been the case during the past few weeks, our social calendar skews heavily blue, with Democrats from all over getting in on the fundraising game. Since we know the GOP does just as much fundraising as its counterpart, our only question is: What are the details?! Send us anything and everything – news clippings, hot gossip, attendee lists, luncheon menus, etc. – right here, or share those invites with our confidential upload feature. Don’t be shy! Now let’s ...

PT Round-up: Barack and Michelle Obama headline fundraisers for Democrats, Chris Christie goes three-for-three in Iowa, and Nancy Pelosi has a PAC to the Future party

Hey, party people, hey! Over here at Party Time, we know that political fundraising is a bipartisan mistress, her siren song calling to Democrats and Republicans alike. But it seems like the last few weeks have been extra busy for Dem donors. Last week, the partier-in-chief hit up deep-pocketed supporters in a 24-hour cash-collecting bonanza, cruising through Denver, Dallas, and doing two stops in Austin. (In fact, the trip was so notable that we went on MSNBC to talk about it.) But President Obama wasn’t the only White House denizen getting in on the action. First lady Michelle Obama headlined ...
