Dems rock out, raise cash at Troubadour Reunion Tour

The Troubadour Reunion Tour that folk legends James Taylor and Carole King are currently on stopped at Washington's Verizon Center on Wednesday. 

The tour, named after the famed Los Angeles nightclub where the duo first played, has raised more than $1.5 million for charity so far. And last night it helped at least six Democratic lawmakers raise thousands for their reelection campaigns.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), for instance, was selling tickets for the concert for $2,500 per PAC and $2,400 for an individual, according to the Sunlight Foundation, which tracks lawmakers' fundraising.

Maloney, who opted not to challenge to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) this year, isn't a GOP target. But she's facing a tough primary against New York attorney Reshma Saujani (D) and could use all the campaign cash she can get to sure up her position.

The attendees who shelled out were treated to quite a show, according to reviews.

To help set the scene, here's a clip from Taylor and King's performance in Boston last week.
