Jeffries fundraises for New Dems in NYC, Stefanik raises $500K in Florida

News: House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries headlined a fundraiser on Monday night in New York City to raise cash for the New Democrat Coalition Action Fund.

The event raised more than $100,000 for the fund, which is the political arm of the center-left New Democrat Coalition. The group is playing in a number of open House Democratic primaries to elect candidates who align with the pro-business policies of the New Dems.

Under New Dem Chair Annie Kuster (D-N.H.), the organization launched a national finance committee for the first time in its history. Rep. Marc Veasey (D-Texas) is the finance chair and Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-N.J.) serves as the vice chair.

Also news: House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik raised $500,000 in South Florida Monday.

Stefanik had a lunch in Palm Beach hosted by Paul Packer, Laura Perlmutter, Bruce Toll and Joe Pizza. Tickets ranged from $3,300 to $25,000 for hosts.

Stefanik also had a reception in Boca Raton, Fla., with David Friedman, the former U.S. ambassador to Israel, and NORPAC, a pro-Israel PAC.

And Stefanik met with former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago.

What Biden is up to tonight: President Joe Biden is heading to Bethesda tonight for a campaign reception with Maryland Democratic Gov. Wes Moore. The event is expected to bring in more than $1.3 million. The money will go to the Biden Victory Fund, which splits donations between Biden’s reelection campaign, the DNC and state Democratic parties.

Moore, 45, is a rising Democratic star. A former Army paratrooper and business executive, Moore is Maryland’s first Black governor and only the third in U.S. history.
