Last night was a thrill. We ended up with over 50 people at our house, a new record for us. Combined with another house party in DuPage County, we had over 75 people attending fundraisers for Howard Dean. And this is a county that most equate with Orange County, California.
More importantly, we raised nearly $3,000 for the campaign — as of a few hours ago, we’re at $2800 and counting. People were incredibly generous with their contributions — the smallest contribution was $20 and the largest was $311. We had so many new faces, it was exciting to think how far we’ve come since our first MeetUp in April.
The fun’s just getting started. Iowa’s not even three weeks away.
