Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign raised at least $400,000 during a swing through Louisiana on Monday.
After a campaign rally at Louisiana Leadership Institute, the former Secretary of State and Democratic front-runner for president went to the home of high-profile Democrat Jim Bernhard for a fundraiser attended by about 140 people. Contributions were $2,700 per person, or at least $27,000 to be listed as an event host.
“These events continue the focus on raising contributions for the primary election,” a Clinton aide said, adding that she continued to stress her “commitment to being a champion for everyday Americans.”
About 1,200 Clinton supporters attended the rally earlier in the day, at which Clinton highlighted the federal Affordable Care Act and took aim at her GOP rivals who want the health care law repealed, including Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Clinton then went on to a similar rally at Philander Smith College in Littler Rock, Arkansas, followed by another fundraiser.
At the Arkansas fundraiser, which was held at the home of Kaki Hockersmith, Clinton raised about the same amount as the Baton Rouge event, with another 140 supporters in attendance.
