MINNEAPOLIS (WTAQ) - When all the money is counted the Minnesota Democratic party expects Saturday’s Humphrey-Mondale dinner will have brought in about a half-million dollars.
U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin was the keynote speaking for the annual event at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The Democrat is the first openly gay member of the U.S. Senate and she’s not the first Wisconsin politician to cross the state line to help her part raise some money this year.
The state’s other senator, Republican Ron Johnson, was the headliner at the Minnesota Republican’s fundraiser earlier this year.
