WASHINGTON — While Washington, D.C. braced Monday evening for the federal government to shut down, Hillary Clinton hosted rich, connected, powerful Democrats at her swanky northwest D.C. home to raise money for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.
“Good to see everybody!” McAuliffe said before being driven away from Clinton’s home in a black SUV on Monday night.
The Democratic nominee for governor declined to answer questions from The Daily Caller about the Virginians likely to be furloughed in a government shutdown. An estimated 150,000 Virginians are likely to be affected.
Despite the shutdown threat, a Who’s Who of national Democrats (and a deer) still attended the fundraiser at the invitation of the former Secretary of State, First Lady and likely 2016 presidential candidate.
Clinton was not seen by press and protestors standing outside her house. But guests spotted by The Daily Caller included McAuliffe; Democratic strategists Paul Begala and James Carville.
