Word reaches me of a fund-raiser 5 p.m. Thursday at the Capital Hotel for Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, the Minnesota senator.
Mack McLarty, the business mogul and former Clinton White House chief, is throwing the event. He had been a previous supporter of her Senate candidacies.
UPDATE: I’m advised fund-raising is not required for attendees. It’s a meet-and-greet, though of course contributions will be welcome. Former Sens. Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln are also hosting the event. I’m further advised that the event is done in the name of friendliness, not necessarily as a direct endorsement.
