Meanwhile, Wynn campaign manager Lori Sherwood said Wynn raised about $160,000 in the last quarter, and has $400,000 still on hand.
She said the campaign plans to bank over $1 million, and that a fundraiser scheduled next month in Montgomery County with U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should help them rake in the dough. Sherwood said the details of that event are still being worked out.
UPDATE: It's hard to figure out quite what Pelosi is thinking, considering this is much more support than even Steny Hoyer is offering Wynn. My read is that Pelosi is wooing support within the CBC, which is strongly backing Wynn.
In the end, though, the insider angles don't matter. Queen Pelosi just made her bed.
I'll also note that this confirms a rule of thumb I live by. Here it is. No matter how brazenly stupid or corrupt you think that insiders might behave, they will not only be worse than you expect, but will continue to shock you with how much worse they are than you expected they would be.
