Hillary Clinton on Monday night told a hungry pack of about 60 Hollywood moguls the Democrats must keep their hold on the Senate, which is not exactly a shockingly new bit of news, other than the fact that last night her audience put a lot of money where their mouths were, Deadline reported.
The event co-chair Jeffrey Katzenberg commented on “the amazing drawing power” of the former Secretary of State, and, like we said in the headline, the event raised $2.1 million for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, but, come on, it was a West Coast nod to the next queen of America.
The presumptive presidential candidate headlined the Brentwood fundraiser, co-hosted by Katzenberg and his wife Marilyn, and Casey and Laura Wasserman, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, Disney chairman Alan Horn and Cindy Harrell Horn, and Live Nation president and CEO Michael Rapino and Jolene Rapino.
We said moguls, right?
Andy Spahn and Jennifer Perry were also co-chairs. Avengers director Joss Whedon was there, as well as Eva Longeria, Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons and Cameron Diaz.
According to deadline, Hillary didn’t mention running. She didn’t have to. Because earlier, at a Hillary fundraising lunch in San Francisco, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the crowd that should she decide to run, “she will win.”
Deadline cites a source that confirmed Hillary “tonight acted like and was treated like an anointed Presidential candidate, worked the room like her hat was already thrown into the ring.”
