Who knew Sen. Amy Klobuchar was a Glee fan?
Klobuchar is hosting a fundraiser next month at the “Glee Live! In Concert!” show in Washington, according to the Sunlight Foundation’s fundraiser tracker Party Time.
The price to attend the June 9 show with Klobuchar at the Verizon Center is a $2,000 contribution — about $1,900 more than a face value ticket. (Tickets are either $108.70 or $66.25, according to Ticketmaster.)
Klobuchar is holding the fundraiser with Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore. The concert is a live version of the popular hit Fox TV show about a high school glee club.
This isn’t the first time that Klobuchar, who has a 15-year-old daughter, has mixed teen pop culture and politics. During last year’s confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, Klobuchar asked if the nominee had an opinion on “Team Edward vs. Team Jacob” in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” movie.
Klobuchar had said that her daughter went to the premiere the night before: “We did not miss it,” she said, “and it culminated in three 15-year-old girls sleeping over at 3 a.m.”
