With the general election approaching, it’s time for some fun fundraisers.
Hillary Clinton wants all of America to have a typical New York experience – broadway tickets included. So she is raffling off tickets for a Hamilton performance (maybe not so typical NYC after all, considering how hard it is to get those tickets.)
“When I first saw the musical Hamilton last year, I was blown away. It’s an incredible feat of storytelling about the fight for the heart and soul of our very nation. It’s a look at history that feels immediately relevant today. It’s a beautiful piece of art with empathy to spare.”

Of the six Republicans and two Democrats remaining in the field, three have a strong New York connection. But Trump, Sanders and Clinton might get company.
The rumor mill is spinning about a possible Independent run of former New York major Michael Bloomberg. And if the New York press corps was excited about a Trump run, they will love a Bloomberg run even more, as Politico’s media writer Jack Shafer analyzed.
“A vast buffet of Bloomberg stories are there for the grabbing should Bloomberg announce. Stories about his money, his New York City mayoralty, his high-voltage wonkery, his money, his wacky centrism, his media empire, his personal relationships, his money, his crusades against soda, guns and trans fat, and of course, his money. The New York press corps, already the beneficiary of a Trump candidacy that has permitted them to recycle decades of celebrity real-estate reporting into their Trump campaign coverage, will win similar residuals when Bloomberg announces.”
