🎶 California Dreamin... 🎶

Garren Shipley - February 16, 2018

I wanted to be sure you saw this story about Alison Friedman’s most recent fundraising report. Long story short, it looks like people in California really, really support her. 
 
Virginia… not so much. From the Free Beacon:
 
"Alison Friedman, a Democrat who moved to Northern Virginia last year to challenge Republican representative Barbara Comstock, received nearly half of her $1 million in donations from California, most of which came from the liberal strongholds of the Bay Area and Los Angeles, federal election records show..."
 
"...Forty-eight percent of Friedman's donations came from California, while only 5 percent of her total came from donors who live in Virginia and only 4 percent from supporters who reside in nearby D.C., according to campaign-finance records.
 
"The star-studded list of Democratic donors and celebrities from California and New York includes Barbra Streisand, actress Jennifer Garner, singer Bonnie Raitt, as well as George Soros, his son Alexander, and the Pritzker family—one of the richest families in the United States, best known for their ownership of the Hyatt hotel chain among other businesses."
 
"Other West Coast donors include Bill Neukom, the former general partner of the San Francisco Giants, Peter Getty, grandson of the oil tycoon heir, and his wife, as well as singer Graham Nash."
 
"D.C.-area notables who cut checks include: Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority Foundation; Donna Brazile, former head of the Democratic National Committee; Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the former lieutenant governor of Maryland who is Robert Kennedy's oldest child; and Adrian Fenty, D.C.'s former mayor."
