Hinckley slates three California fundraisers
The cost of running against Senator Sheldon Whitehouse next year is generally placed in the $5 million ballpark. That’s low by national standards, but still quite a bit of change, so Republican Barry Hinckley is getting in motion with a trio of California events this week.
On Wednesday, Russ Hanlin, Erinn Lynch, Louise Carroll, and Terry Clougherty are hosting a Pasadena reception for Hinckley. A day later, on Thursday, the Saint Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco will be the scene of a Hinckley reception hosted by Butch Haze and Tom Lynch.
Finally, on Friday, a reception to introduce Hinckley will be held at The Pacific Club in Newport Beach. The hosts are Robert Cristiano and Cammy Leslie.
Invites for the events don’t suggest a minimum donation, but do indicate that contributions are welcome.
Hinckley is the president and co-founder of Bullhorn, a software company. If former governor Don Carcieri or former State Police superintendent Brendan Doherty jump into the Senate race, presumably creating a GOP primary, look for Hinckley to tout himself as the fiscal conserative-social moderate candidate.
