Hope it raises 20 mil!!
Just went to DC and visited the tower and hotel. Absolutely STUNNING. You wouldn’t believe the chandeliers. Brandy bar, champagne bar, etc.. Superb staff and inviting, plush surroundings.
Went to the same in NYC (went there years ago as well). Beautiful. Lunch was scrumptious.

We send a little bit every month or two. He’s fighting for us.
I hope he can choose which Republicans get these donations.
i love that guy.
CNN’s Kirsten Powers said the fundraiser wasn’t the least bit appropriate.
