Hillary Clinton was wrapping up a fundraising blitz in the Hamptons, where she has racked up millions during a three-day swing.
The Democratic presidential nominee hopped from mansion to mansion in the tony New York oceanfront vacation destination, appearing at parties and dinners where the contributions ranged from $1,000 to $100,000 for guests and hosts. The top-dollar tour was set to conclude Tuesday night with an event in Sag Harbor complete with performances from Jimmy Buffett and Jon Bon Jovi.
Clinton kicked off her Tuesday fundraisers with an afternoon party in Sagaponack, where guests mingled with the candidate in a sunny backyard dotted with tables decked in red- and blue-checkered tablecloths.
The events all raised money for the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fund supporting her campaign, the Democratic National Committee and state party organizations.
Heading into the final stretch of the campaign, Clinton is stressing that the race against Republican Donald Trump is far from over. At an event Monday she told guests that “this is the most unpredictable election season that I certainly can remember.”
Clinton heads to Ohio Wednesday, where she will speak at the American Legion’s annual convention in Cincinnati.
Meanwhile, the State Department said about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Clinton emails recovered during the FBI’s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.
Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department’s lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.
Mehta questioned why it would take so long, and urged that the process be sped up. He ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.
The hearing was held in one of several lawsuits filed by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, which has sued over access to government records involving the Democratic presidential nominee. The State Department has said the FBI provided it with about 14,900 emails purported not to have been among those previously released.
While in North Carolina, Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence attacked Clinton in the battleground state.
The Indiana governor lashed out at her at a campaign rally in Winston-Salem Tuesday over her email controversies, the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi and her dealings with donors to the Clinton Foundation, all while she was secretary of state.
Pence also reminded supporters that the composition of the Supreme Court could hinge on the election’s outcome.
Pence was in Charlotte last week as both parties pursue a state that Obama won in 2008 and lost four years later.
Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine spoke in Erie, Pa., where he described Trump’s campaign as a con job, saying he has “utterly failed” to answer basic questions about his finances and background.
