Not many journalists (or people for that matter) have ever had the chance to go and see the Trump Campaign headquarters at the luxurious Trump Tower.

If you want to be one of the lucky(?) ones, the Trump campaign is raffling off a tour and lunch with Eric Trump for every donation over $3.

Clinton Hamilton Raffle

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.”

Enter your name here for a chance to win two free tickets and a round-flight. Or click here to buy tickets as part of a fundraiser – starting at $2,700.

Video Recap of Hillary’s Victory Night

Two days ago, I blogged about going to Hillary Clinton’s primary party in the Sheraton New York hotel. Here now is a video story I produced for NYU Now that  aired tonight.

Gets the enthusiasm of the night across a little better than just the photos 😉

Hillary Clinton Celebrates at Times Square Victory Party

Hillary Clinton had a good night. And so had her supporters.

This woman is showing off her Hillary suit, while she is waiting in line.

Clinton’s victory party was already well underway at the Sheraton Hotel in Times Square, when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer called the race for the former hometown senator.

The crowd alternated between “Hillary, Hillary!” and “I am with her!” cheers.

With 98% of the votes reported, Clinton led Sanders by 15.8%, a larger margin than even the most promising polls suggested.

The media’s view, the real party is hidden behind the press podium.

Before Clinton took to the stage herself, prominent surrogates – including mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo – celebrated New York as a progressive democratic power house. 
  
And then the room full of supporters and volunteers finally got a glimpse of their candiate. Hillary Clinton entered the podium together with her husband Bill, her (very pregnant) daughter Chelsea and her son-in-law.

  
“Today you proved again, there’s no place like home,” a smiling Clinton told the cheering crowd.

The former Secretary of State only mentioned her opponent Sanders in passing, and instead put her focus on the general election. She repeatedly attacked Donald Trump and Ted Cruz – for example when she  gave her own definition of New York Values.
