D.C. fundraising group takes aim at campaigns across the country

They were part of a grass-roots fundraising group known as 31st Street Swing Left, a chapter of the national organization Swing Left, which is focused on flipping red seats blue.

The group’s members were from all over the country. But they were really anchored in Washington, D.C. — specifically on 31st Street NW, in a red-brick, solar-powered house where the group’s founder, Lisa Herrick, was now asking the hundreds of people to please mute themselves so the fundraiser could begin.

“I know a lot of you want me to tell brown-bear stories,” Gross told the group, referring to his popular campaign-trail tale about once killing a grizzly bear in self-defense. “But instead I’m going to tell you how I’m going to win the U.S. Senate race.”

The Aug. 8 fundraiser showed just how far, quite literally, 31st Street had come since Herrick founded the group in her living room in

Zimbabwe tobacco sales down 23.5% after poor rains

HARARE, Aug 31 (Reuters) – Sales of Zimbabwe’s tobacco, the second largest foreign currency earner, fell 23.52% to 178.7 million kilograms this year, official data showed on Monday, after production was affected by lower rainfall.

The tobacco auction season, which ended on Friday, traditionally leads to improved foreign exchange inflows in the southern African nation as buyers bring in dollars to purchase the crop.

The Tobacco Industry and Marketing Board said farmers delivered 178.7 million kilogram at the close of auctions compared to 233.6 million kg during the same period last year.

Although this year’s crop was smaller, firmer prices helped farmers earn $460.7 million, more than the $447 million they got year.

Tobacco is the second single biggest foreign currency earner after mining. Demand from China, the world’s biggest smoking nation, and funding from private tobacco companies have helped drive output, which had plunged to its lowest in 2008.
