Clinton raises about $350,00 at campaign stop in Cresskill

SEPTEMBER 25, 2015, 6:52 PM    LAST UPDATED: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2015, 7:31 PM

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stopped in North Jersey on Thursday night and left having raised about $350,000 for her campaign from a crowd that included some of the state’s most powerful Democrats.

Clinton, a former Secretary of State, was hosted by Michael Kempner and his wife, Jacqueline, at their Cresskill home. Michael Kempner heads East Rutherford-based MWW Public Relations, one of the largest marketing and public relations firms in the state, and was a top fundraiser for Clinton’s failed 2008 campaign for the White House. The Kempners also hosted President Obama in 2010 and Vice President Joseph Biden in 2011.

On Thursday night, Clinton mingled with the crowd and posed for photos with about 50 guests. She then spoke for about 20 to 30 minutes, touching on a wide range of issues – education, the environment, drug addiction, transportation and issues affecting women and children. She also took a shot at Republicans, telling donors and guests that the GOP is “going from the party of Lincoln to the party of Trump,” Kempner said, referring to the businessman-cum-Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.

  1. I doubt whether our Mayor would pony up $2700 per plate for anything, even it the event were honoring his own smug face. Would anyone care to share any FACTUAL information regarding his attendance at fund raising events for the Friends of the Ridgewood Public Library?

  2. He was at the Friends of the Ridgewood Public Library just outside the gate. He didn’t go in but just positioned himself so it looked that way.

  3. He thinks he’s a Kennedy.

  4. Paul, you are pitiful. Do you have any idea how low public opinion of you is? If you weren’t so deserving of such ridicule, it would be sad. But you and your big fat ego,have brought this on yourself,and you deserve all the mocking you get.
