Beware: Mikulski Funder in Baltimore
Sen. Barbara A. Milkulski is holding a big hometown fundraiser for her 2010 re-election on the Ides of March.
The other 12 Democratic women senators are invited guests. Mikulski, first elected to the Senate in 1986, is proud to be known as their dean.
Tickets to the March 15 event at the downtown Hilton overlooking Camden Yards go for $500. The VIP reception, a chance to mingle in a more exclusive way ahead of time, costs $1,000 to $2,400 a head.
Several hundred people will attend, according to campaign manager Simone Ward.
Ward wouldn't say what they expect to clear from the event, but you can do the rough math. Of course, everyone there may not be a paying guest. Then again, some who give are typically no-shows.
