The veep and Mary

High-Dollar Fundraiser

comment

  Making a hard push for money ahead of next year's re-election campaign, Sen. Mary Landrieu is getting a little help from none other than Vice President Joe Biden. The veep will travel to New Orleans Jan. 26 for a Landrieu fundraiser at the Ritz-Carlton. It's certain to be a high-dollar event — which explains the absence of a price on the invitations. A source close to the campaign said it's a "major boost," especially from a White House that seemed to avoid many other opportunities to help raise money in Louisiana. — JEREMY ALFORD
