Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz to help Virginia Dems raise funds

Virginia Reps. Jim Moran and Gerry Connolly hope to give home state Dems a boost with a fundraiser Wednesday at an Arlington club.

Lending them a hand will be Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. She is billed as the event’s “special guest.”

Tickets can be had for $50, but sponsorship levels go all the way up to $10,000.

And just so everybody’s clear, the fine print on the invite notes that Wasserman Schultz’s campaign coffers won’t get a cut.

“Debbie Wasserman Schultz is appearing at this event only as a special guest,” it says. “Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not asking for funds or donations.”

The event takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Clarendon Ballroom, 3185 Wilson Boulevard.
