Hillary Clinton "Values" Indian Community Support: New York Fundraiser Nets $2.2 Million

Baltimore, June 13, 2007: Presidential candidate Senator Hillary Clinton has reached out to broader American community to seek their support for her candidacy. Mrs. Clinton met with Dr. Kamala Edwards, President, IALC at a fundraiser organized by Governor Martin O’Malley where she was received by Maryland House of Delegates Speaker Pro Tem Adrienne Jones, US Senator Barbara Mikulski, Congressman Ruppersburger and over 40 Maryland officials. The fundraiser exceeded its target and raised over $500,000.

Indian-Americans raised $2.2 million for Hillary’s presidential campaign in New York. The June 24th event showcased the growing activism of Indian-Americans, now regarded as the wealthiest ethnic minority in America. More than 1200 people packed the ballroom of the Sheraton contributing $1000 to $2300 apiece for the evening with Clinton. Mrs. Clinton said,” We value the relationship and because we have so many friends here in the country." But the biggest cheer of the evening came when, speaking of her own presidential bid, she remarked, "I understand that it's likely that India will have a women president, perhaps in the next month or so." The New York Daily News reported, "It's a constituency that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been courting for more than a decade."
