OFA Begins To Raise Money

Now part of the Democratic National Committee, Organizing for America is hosting its first grassroots fundraiser on Feb. 26.  $250 gets you a VIP ticket; among the celebs in attendance: Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA). (An organizer tells me now that Warner is unconfirmed, but that Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Eric Massa will attend. $44 gets you generally admitted. About 500 young activist types have RSVPd, a pretty impressive number because Warner isn't really that much of a celebrity to them. The idea is that these 500 folks don't want to pay to schmooze; they really want to move OFA along.
