Durbin, Lisa Madigan with Rahm on board for Hillary 2016 funder


WASHINGTON — Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill. and Attorney General Lisa Madigan are joining Mayor Rahm Emanuel in boosting the June 5 Chicago fundraisers for the Ready for Hillary SuperPac, with a group of Chicago’s donor elites — from both the 2008 Clinton and Obama camps — joining together to push a $1,000 event at Phil Stefani’s on Rush Street. After that there is a low dollar event, with Rep. Jan Schakowsky D-Ill. and others at John Barleycorn on Kinzie.

The SuperPac is encouraging Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for president in 2016; I reported earlier this month about Emanuel headlining the high dollar event in Chicago.

The host committee, still in formation includes Kevin O’Keefe, Clinton’s high school pal; Alan and Andrea Solow and Laura Ricketts, top Obama bundlers; Myron and Patricia Cherry, top donors and fundraisers for Bill Clinton; Lynn Cutler, a diehard Clinton backer who served in the Bill Clinton White House, Democratic activist and fund-raiser Kevin Conlon and more. See all the names on the invite above.

There will also be a low dollar event with tickets starting at $20.16.
