Upcoming: On Hillary Clinton's Agenda

Hillary Clinton-Headlined Fundraiser For Bill de Blasio Woos Donors To Fight Against Tea Party

Bill de Blasio's big fundraiser with Hillary Clinton is Oct. 21 at The Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, and according to the invitation email, it's them versus the right-wing bad guys.

"Our Republican Tea Party opponents are willing to spend whatever it takes to disrupt this campaign and distort Bill's vision for bold progressive change. And this reception with Hillary Clinton will be one of the final opportunities we have to raise the funds we need to make it over the finish line on November 5th," de Blasio Finance Director Ross Offinger says in the email.

"Every dollar of your ticket price goes towards making sure this campaign for progressive change has what it takes to send Bill to City Hall, and change this city so that it works for every New Yorker."

De Blasio worked at HUD during the Clinton Adminstration and went on to run the former First Lady's successful 2000 run for the U.S. Senate before becoming a city councilman and then public advocate over the course of his political career.

Hillary Clinton will be the featured speaker at the tenth anniversary event later this month for the Center for American Progress, the influential Washington-based progressive think tank and activist group, POLITICO has learned.

Clinton’s remarks at the Oct. 24 event come as she continues to debate whether to launch a second presidential campaign – and put her before a critical policy group that is key for candidates looking to address progressive Democrats.

The president of CAP, which in its earliest incarnation was focused heavily on ending the Iraq war, is Neera Tanden, a longtime adviser to Clinton, who worked on her 2000 U.S. Senate race in New York and later on her 2008 presidential campaign. Tanden and CAP founder John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff, are also expected to speak.
