More on the Trump Bedminster fund-raiser from Chris Russell, spokesman for the Rep. Tom MacArthur campaign, via email:
"It was a great event with about 100 guests and the Congressman raised more than $800,000. The theme of his remarks were about making tough decisions and solving problems. He didn't run for Congress to decorate a chair. Obamacare is failing, premiums are rising and choices are dwindling. Tom decided sitting on the sidelines and letting it completely collapse was not an option. His efforts will ensure access to quality healthcare, protect people with preexisting conditions and lower costs for families and small business."
The three white press vans arrived at the Newark airport at 5:40. They drove in a column in the right lane of a three lane interstate highway, hazard lights flashing, at a pace leisurely enough for passing cars to suspect a small funeral procession.
After security screening at the FBO, press is back in vans, a few hundred yards from Air Force One.
