Buffalo Dems still raising funds for Slaughter

  Rep. Louise M. Slaughter may be shuffling out of Buffalo as a result of reapportionment, but that doesn't mean she is abandoning her old district when it comes to raising money.

   The Fairport Democrat, who is facing the toughest re-election challenge of her long career against Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks, attracted more than 50 supporters to a fund-raiser at the Damon and Morey law firm in the Avant Building on Wednesday, according to several sources who attended the event.

   The event was hosted by Erie County Democratic Chairman Leonard R. Lenihan.

   The congresswoman is still recovering from a serious leg injury when she fell in New York City earlier this year, but those who attended the Wednesday event said she appeared to be in fine form.

   And with a significant amount of campaign funds stemming from the event that started at $250 a ticket, she may feel even better after her latest trip to Buffalo.
