The Democrats are having a cash flow problem.
As a result, Tom Perez, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is planning to hold some fundraisers in… Mexico.
The Daily Caller reports:
Tom Perez Holds Fundraisers In Mexico As DNC Struggles To Raise Money
Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez will hold three fundraisers for American ex-patriots in Mexico, as Democrats struggle to keep pace with Republicans in fundraising.
Perez will host three events in Mexico City on Sept. 28, Bloomberg reported. One event is a happy hour that will cost $25 to attend. Perez will also host a dinner where tickets are going for between $1,000 and $15,000.
DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa’s confirmed to Bloomberg that the events would be taking place.
The DNC will require attendees to provide information showing that they are American citizens or permanent residents, in order to comply with federal campaign finance laws. About 1.5 American citizens live in Mexico, Bloomberg reported, citing State Department data.
The DNC under Perez’s watch has lagged far behind Republicans in terms of fundraising. The DNC took in $8.5 million in contributions in June, while the Republican National Committee reported $20.7 million.
This has not gone unnoticed by people.
