Far left department store heir and Minnesota Democratic Gubernatorial hopeful Mark Dayton said on December 2, 2010 that former President Bill Clinton will headline a fundraiser in New York City on December 13th to help Dayton pay for the recount of votes in the as yet undecided Minnesota Governor’s race.
Dayton said the event will be held at the home of financier George Soros. Dayton also said he’s is trying to schedule a fundraiser for December 15th that will be hosted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and others. Dayton says that fundraiser will go to his campaign. Dayton has raised more than $1,000,000 to so far for the recount.
Dayton says he he’s leading Republican Tom Emmer by about 9,000 votes after three days of counting.
