WASHINGTON -- Hillary Clinton's presidential bid will get a boost from a dozen female senators next month when they host a fundraiser for her in Washington, D.C.
Sens. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) are holding the event, which requires a minimum donation of $250. People who raise $27,000 get to attend a post-event dinner with Clinton and the senators.
Sens. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the only female Democratic senators not attending, have yet to endorse Clinton.
Clinton served as New York's junior senator from 2001-2009 and was the state's first female senator. She has racked up far more congressional endorsements than her main primary challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and the GOP contenders. Among senators alone, Clinton has 33 endorsements. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) has the next highest total, with three endorsements. Sanders has zero, although he has been endorsed by two members of the House of Representatives.
