What about the HARRY REID fundraiser by Kay Hagan Friday night?

We need a complete accounting, most especially the attendees and WHY they would support the vile Harry Reid of NEVADA???

The affair was likely smallish as it is believed NOT held in a 'public ballroom type space...thought to have been sequestered in Reid's own suite at the posh Umstead Hotel. Did Hagan buy the room?
