(New York Times) Hillary Rodham Clinton will celebrate her 68th birthday this month, and what better way to ring it in than with a campaign fund-raiser?
Her campaign has a blowout bash planned for Oct. 25 (the day before her actual birthday) in New York City to toast Mrs. Clinton and bring in campaign contributions in the $250-to-$2,700 range from hundreds of loyal friends and supporters. The singer John Legend will perform, possibly working a rendition of "Happy Birthday" into his oeuvre.
The party, according to a person with direct knowledge of the event, comes as the Clinton campaign is trying to kick its fund-raising into high gear after a relatively sluggish summer. Last week, the campaign said it had raised $28 million in the past three months, a significant drop from the $45.5 million it raised in the first three months since Mrs. Clinton announced her candidacy in April.
