Bloomberg to host Brown fund-raiser
Mayor Michael Michael R. Bloomberg of New York is throwing a fund-raiser for Senator Scott Brown, bolstering Brown’s credentials as a business-friendly independent. Bloomberg’s support could help Brown, a Massachusetts Republican locked in a reelection fight against Democrat Elizabeth Warren, shield himself from critics who say he marches in lockstep with Washington Republicans. The fund-raiser will take place Aug. 15 at the mayor’s Upper East Side townhouse. Donors are asked to give between $1,000 and $5,000 to Brown’s reelection campaign.
