Pinellas Dems plan June 13 gala
UPDATE: Rachel Maddow won't come, per a spokeswoman.
PINELLAS COUNTY -- Democratic Party leaders in Pinellas are seeking sponsorships at $250 and $1,000 for the party's June 13 fundraiser at the Hilton in St. Petersburg.
Speakers haven't been named for the "Democrats Coming Together" themed event -- sort of like Jefferson-Jackson dinners elsewhere. But Bay Buzz hears that they are trying to lure Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire (the old stomping grounds of county chairman Ramsay McLauchlan) and even MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.
