Speaks volumes to who you are. For example, in 2012, Senator Angus King reached out to the DC Podesta Group that graciously hosted a fundraiser for his Senatorial campaign: Click Here.
After winning his seat, King, as a freshman Senator, is given the plush assignment to serve on the Senate Intel Committee. What friends did he have on the Hill? John McCain. He likes McCain so much he even wears a McCain Institute pullover while he visited the County for his second run in 2018.
And who did Senator McCain hang around with while he was still alive?
Moustafa, an interesting Muslim Brotherhood kind of guy. So, in summary, get some rich guys (Podestas) to help me win my seat, get cozy with guys like McCain, ride top cover in Senate Intel, and do whatever business we need to do to get richer. King is supposedly worth over $22 Million today.
Bonus round: Who serves on the McCain Institute Board of Trustees? How about Dave Patraeus and Lyn De Rothschild for starters? Click here for full list
