Lobster, calamari and chowder at Cicilline fundraiser tonightJune 27th, 2012 at 4:40 pm by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes, On the Main Site
Congressman Cicilline is having the tastiest fundraiser ever tonight in Washington, Politico reports:
FRESH LOBSTER, CASH FOR CICILLINE: Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) will be feted with “lobster flown in fresh” among other New England delicacies at a fundraiser tonight at the D.C. home of Gary Jankowski and Michael Schaeffer. And Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) is expected. Minimum contribution is $250, with “sponsor” level participation going for $2,500.
The invitation [pdf] describes the event as a “Taste of Rhode Island Reception” and says guests will be served “lobster flown in fresh this morning, Rhode Island-style calamari, and traditional New England clam chowder.” Host Jankowski is apparently a Realtor in D.C. who went to Boston College.
Cicilline’s campaign sent supporters an email blast earlier Wednesday that said the congressman is still $7,450 short of his fundraising goal for the second quarter, which ends at midnight Saturday.
