Today, reporters were allowed to eavesdrop on the weekly conference call with major donors to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. And Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic Monthly reports back with this gem:
Dallas's Debbie Branson, a former president of the state trial bar, implored the campaign to send Clinton down to Texas pronto. "Y'all need to get to Texas... Texans are not afraid of a strong, independent woman... we need you to get here."
Ambinder means Branson was president of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, by the way. Still, we end the day by completing the circle: Branson was also the finance chair for Garry Mauro's gubernatorial campaign 10 years ago. --Robert Wilonsky
