Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will attend a $100,000-per-couple fundraising event.
Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, the billionaire CEO of E.L. Rothschild, has been a longtime and vicious critic of President Barack Obama. Rothschild, following Clinton’s failure to secure the Democratic nomination, was outspoken in her distaste for then-Sen. Obama. In an interview with CNN, Rothschild stated that “the class war that Barack Obama would like to declare in this country to divide people is so wrong.”
Rothschild’s distaste for Obama was strong enough that she went so far as to back then-Republican nominee Sen. John McCain.
Huma Abedin, Hillary’s right hand staffer, and Clinton are reportedly going to spend the evening at an oceanfront mansion after attending the fundraiser, reports Page Six.
This six figure Martha’s Vineyard fundraiser is nothing new for Clinton. Hillary hosted multiple $100,000-a-head fundraisers in New York and New Jersey in May. In April, the Clinton camp hosted a fundraiser at the home of actor George Clooney, where the cost per attendee was some $33,400, the Journal reports.
