Nutter to hold 1st fundraiser of 2011

It won't be known until later today just how much cash Mayor Nutter raised in 2010 - but he is already hard at work generating campaign dollars for 2011.

At 6 p.m. tomorrow, Nutter will host his first major re-election fundraiser, at the Comcast Center. The cost of admission: $1,000 for individual donors and $5,000 for political committees. Both figures are under the city's campaign finance limits, giving those same contributors the chance to give again. Those limits are $2,600 for individuals and $10,600 for political committees.

By the time that fundraiser begins, Nutter will have disclosed how much he raised last year in a campaign finance report due by 5 p.m. today. Stay tuned.
