Fundraising with Snow

SHERYL GAY STOLBERG reported in the NY Times two days ago that Tony Snow raised about $150,000 from 850 adoring Republicans who had paid $175 apiece to hear him speak at an event in outside Chicago.

Mr. Snow, who will make 16 such appearances before Election Day, acknowledged he had entered "terra incognita"; to his knowledge, no other White House press secretary has ever raised money for political candidates while in the job. But with his star power from television and his conservative credentials, Mr. Snow, is in hot demand.
