Under the Dome

"Sully" headed to DGA

Richard Sullivan, a veteran Democratic fund raiser from Raleigh, has become treasurer of the Democratic Governor's Association.

In the voluntary position, Sullivan will help oversee fund raising for the Washington-based group that is tasked with electing Democratic governors across the country.  The largest state next year with a Democratic incumbent up for re-election is North Carolina where Gov. Bev Perdue faces a tough re-election fight.

Sullivan oversaw a DGA conference at the Umstead Hotel in Cary last year for Perdue that raised $1.2 million, the largest fund raiser of its kind in DGA history.  Perdue is vice chair of the DGA is and likely to be helped by the national party in her re-election bid.

He is a former finance director of the Democratic National Committee and has long-time ties to the Clintons.

In fact, he was in Washington this week, attending a state luncheon for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, hosted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden.
