Hillraising in Philadelphia June 26
Hillary Rodham Clinton will be raising money for her presidential campaign June 26 in Philadelphia at the home of connected Comcast executive David L. Cohen.
Comcast exec and power-broker David L. Cohen and his wife, Rhonda, are holding a midday "conversation" and fundraiser with presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton at their house June 26.
Tickets are $2,700 a person, the maximum individual contribution allowed to federal candidates per election, according to a copy of the event invitation obtained by The Inquirer. People who raise $27,000 from others qualify as co-hosts of the event and gain membership in the Clinton campaign's "Hillstarters" program. Bring in $50,000 and you get a private reception with HRC, and also will become part of the "Hillraisers" program for bundlers.
Hillstarters and Hillraisers receive premium benefits, such as regular briefings from top campaign officials.
The event is scheduled to run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
David L. Cohen was the chief strategist and later chief of staff for Ed Rendell when the ex-governor was mayor of Philadelphia. After a stopover at a politically connected law firm, he was hired as Comcast's executive vice president. Rhonda Cohen is an attorney.
