Desperate Hillary Goes To MEXICO To Beg For Campaign Cash

Expecting a devastating loss to Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton is about to go to Mexico as she desperately attempts to raise money in the face of the powerful small donor network Sanders has cultivated.

According to The Hill:

“Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign is holding fundraisers in Mexico on Wednesday, expanding its offshore money operation one day after the New Hampshire primary.

Two events hosted by the Clinton campaign treasurer Jose Villarreal will be held in Mexico City. Clinton herself will not be attending.

One of the co-hosts of the fundraising dinner is Wal-Mart lobbyist Ivan Zapien, who relocated to Mexico with the company in 2015. Clinton served on the board of Wal-Mart from 1986-1992.

A breakfast fundraiser will be held at the home of Alejandra Rangel Smith, an academic who has written about public health and housing in Mexico.”

The article notes Mexico City is an unusual fundraising location: 

“Overseas fundraisers are relatively common for leading presidential candidates, though Mexico City is not itself a common destination. Donors attending must assert that they are U.S. citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the United States.”
