Harry Reid Cancels New Orleans Fundraiser With Mary Landrieu
The fundraiser for Harry Reid in New Orleans this weekend has been cancelled. Reid and Landrieu say they will be in Washington working on ramming through Obamacare. Harry Reid gifted Landrieu with $300 million after her vote to open debate on Obamacare. It was announced around the same time that she would hold a fundraiser for Harry Reid in December.
A New Orleans fundraiser scheduled Saturday for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has been canceled as the Senate expects to stay in session over the weekend to continue consideration on the health care overhaul bill.
Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., and political strategist James Carville were to host a brunch for Reid at the St. Charles Avenue home of businessman David Voelker.
The entry level contribution was $4,800. Landrieu’s office said she would not be in Louisiana this weekend because she will be working on the health care legislation, which is likely to be shaped by floor votes
