Pataki hires fundraiser
Let's be honest... in order to be president of the United States you need a kick-ass fundraising director. Now, I know the Republican governor in New York, George Pataki really wants to be President. Therefore, it was interesting to see hire a former aid to Dick Cheney as finance director for his Virginia-based 21st Century Freedom PAC. The Boston Globe reports:
A former political director for Cheney, [Kara] Ahern was northeast finance director for the Bush-Cheney re-election campaign in 2004 and was a chief fundraiser for Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey's unsuccessful run for governor this year in Massachusetts.The PAC pays for Pataki's travel around the country and makes donations to other GOP candidates.
