Former Democratic National Committee chairman, noted “Friend of Bill & Hill” and fundraising powerhouse Terry McAuliffe will speak next Wednesday, Jan. 31 at the Commonwealth Club of California office, on the second floor of 595 Market St. in San Francisco. Says the club’s news release:
The man being credited with the Democratic Party’s recent victories in the House and Senate, Terry McAuliffe, and soon be at the forefront of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, will discuss his experiences working closely with the country’s most prominent and influential Democrats. For more than twenty-five years, McAuliffe has been at the heart of American politics, fighting hard for the Democratic Party. Since his first job with the Carter-Mondale campaign straight out of Catholic University in Washington, McAuliffe has hobnobbed with everyone from Tip O’Neill to Jimmy Carter.
It’s a 5:30 p.m. wine-and-cheese reception, a 6 p.m. program and a 7 p.m. signing of his new book, What a Party!: My Life Among Democrats. Tickets cost $12 for members, $18 for non-members, and reservations can be made through the club’s Web site.
