Big money fundraiser for Mahoning County and Ohio Democratic parties
About 120 people attended a $500-a-ticket fundraiser at the Zoldan family home in Canfield today to raise money for the Mahoning County and Ohio Democratic parties.
“It speaks to the importance of Mahoning County and the entire region,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern about the event. “To win next year as Barack Obama did in 2012, we’ll have to turn out the vote in Democratic-rich areas like this.”
Events, such as this, help raise the money needed by Democrats to run effective campaigns and turn out the vote, Redfern said.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz headlined the dinner.
