Oddball PT Round-up: Party Time's top 10 zaniest political fundraisers of 2014

Party people, the year is quickly drawing to a close and you know what that means: A look back at the best – as in, creative/kooky/oddball – parties of 2014! (If you know of a winner that we don’t have, you know what to do! Send it right here.) As we thumb through the year that was, we are struck by all of the strategic partying that went down, especially in the run-up to the midterms. We watched potential 2016-ers Hillary Clinton, outgoing Gov. Martin O’Malley, D-Md., Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., crisscross the country and ...

PT Round-up: Pre-election pasta; Sen. Roy Blunt has Election Day fundraiser and Sen. David Vitter cashes in on Disney magic

Hello, party people! It’s the week we’ve all been waiting for: The midterm elections are finally here! Politicians took advantage of the Halloween theme last week, trick or treating for cash in last-minute attempts to fill up their campaign coffers before Election Day. But with the balloting upon us, this week’s social calendar so far looks sparse compared to what we’ve seen in recent months. Even so, a few enterprising pols are getting started on the NEXT campaign. And, as the results come in on Tuesday night, Party Time expects to hear about plenty of shindigs that aim to fill ...

PT Round-up: Barack Obama raises goop-loads of money with Gwyneth Paltrow; Joe Biden, Carole King make donors sing; Mitt Romney fundraises with Republican heavyweights; plus, a “Game of Thrones” party

Hello, party people! This week’s social calendar is a little less packed than recent weeks, but most of the parties on the books boast big names and carry a high price tag. Over here at Party Time, we like to think of that as strategic partying: If you can charge way more money at a handful of events with well-known faces, then you get to take off an afternoon or two. Treat yourself. The fundraiser schedule this week leans to the left, but we know Republicans love a good party as much as their Democratic counterparts. Have you heard about ...

PT Round-up: Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Mitt Romney all hit the fundraising trail; Chris Christie travels to Ohio; Pat Roberts and Jeb Bush party in Kansas

Hello, party people! Fall is in the air: The leaves are changing, just about everything is pumpkin-flavored and politicians are doubling up on their fundraising efforts. But with members of Congress back in their home districts until after the midterms, much of this week’s partying takes place far away from the usual hotspots around Capitol Hill. As politicians begin the last full month of campaigning and cash collecting before the election, Party Time preps for a full-on fundraising frenzy. Our social calendar may be packed, but we know there’s more going on out there. What’s brewing in your home state? ...

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 ...
