Former DNC Chair Howard Dean Drops Out of LGBT DNC Fundraiser
Could it be that we are family?
Via Americablog - which notes that Dean was one of the top four names on the invite. Americablog also has a rundown of who's in and who's out.
The Victory Fund's Chuck Wolfe has dropped out as well. As has Hilary Rosen.
Rep. Jared Polis is attending the fundraiser. He talked to The Advocate about why he's doing so:
"I’m a Democrat and a proud Democrat. Our party’s not perfect but certainly I will help the Democrats however I can. I did an event for Democrats for education reform Monday and if you figure our party has a ways to go on LGBT equality, we have even further to go on education reform where President Obama has been a great leader, but those are battles we fight every day ... Some donors might choose to support the Party now, some might delay. I would certainly hope that before the next election we’ve demonstrated that we’ve moved substantially on the equality agenda. But if the Democrats fail to deliver on the equality agenda, then it’s reasonable that gay and lesbian donors might choose to donate to activist groups rather than the Party itself.
