Democrats with an extra twenty bucks (and change) can support Hillary Clinton’s not-yet-announced presidential run in Tampa next week.

Ready for Hillary, the Super PAC backing the nascent campaign of the former First Lady and Secretary of State, is holding a “low dollar” reception on Tuesday, Feb. 24, at Mise en Place, 442 West Kennedy Blvd. from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

A ticket costs $20.16; spots on the host committee are $201.60, or bringing 10 guests.

So far, the committee features a list of prominent Tampa Democrats: state Sen. Arthenia Joyner, state Rep. Janet Cruz, Alan Clendenin, former Tampa Mayor Sandy Freedman, the Honorable Pat Frank, the Honorable Julianne Holt, attorney Fentrice Driskell, Ana Cruz, Diane Hart, Marvin Knight, and attorney Sean Shaw.

“Every day, my email inbox is filled with various emails from just about every corner of the political world asking for hundreds, even thousands of dollars, but this party is going to be different,” said Clendenin, the Ready for Hillary Florida chair, on his website.

“A beautiful reception at Mise en Place and it is only $20.16!” he adds.
