SHARE Democratic Senate mega Chicago fund-raiser on April 11

WASHINGTON–Sen. Michael Bennet D-Col., the chairman of theDemocratic Senatorial Campaign Committee–the Senate political shop–is headlining a Chicago fund-raiser on April 11 targetingjumbo donors. A donation forthe maximum–$32,400–gets the contributor into the DSCC“Majority Trust” program which allows special access to senators at briefings and, as the invite for the Chicago event says, “signature retreats.”

Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill. has been a major donor to the DSCC; this year he is up for re-election facing GOP nominee state Sen. Jim Oberweis (R-Sugar Grove). Durbin is seen as such a frontrunner that the DSCC will likely not be putting significant resources into the Illinois race. But Chicago has been a great city for pulling out campaign cash for other contests.

The price points for the DSCC Chicago lunch with Bennet:

Majority Trust Member $32,400

Chair: $25,000|Co-Chair $10,000

Guest $5,000 | Friend $2,500
