Hillary Clinton Returns To Politics With $2,900 Minimum Donation Fundraiser For Dem Senate Candidate

Hillary Clinton will headline a big dollar fundraiser Monday night for Ohio Senate candidate Rep. Tim Ryan, in what will be her first fundraising event since the 2020 election cycle.

The fundraising event, which will be held on Zoom, was first announced by the Ryan campaign Jan. 18. The minimum donation for admission is $2,900, and donors can become event co-chairs for $20,800. Ryan is the presumptive Democratic nominee in the race to succeed retiring Republican Sen. Rob Portman, although he does face a left-wing primary opponent in former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau employee Morgan Harper.

Both Hillary and Bill Clinton are reportedly looking forward to playing a renewed role in Democratic Party politics. Hillary Clinton participated in two fundraisers for then-candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris during the 2020 election cycle, although she was ultimately overshadowed by fundraising surrogates like Stacey Abrams and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Bill Clinton hosted a fundraiser in August 2021 for Virginia gubernatorial candidate and longtime ally Terry McAuliffe. McAuliffe chaired Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
