President Bush last night collected $4 million in a major fundraising last night in New York City. Some Republican officials said the total topped $4.1 million which would set a new fundraising record for a presidential candidate.
Henry McKinnell Jr. was one of the chairs of last night’s host committee. He is also the chairman and CEO of Pfizer the world’s largest drugmaker.
Outside the midtown fundraiser, protesters rallied to demonstrate against Bush’s record on civil rights, abortion AIDS and foreign policy among other things.
