Washington, DC Reception

The 10-10-10 Reception was a great event.  100 people attended the Meet “n” Greet at the Duplex Diner, a DC restaurant and bar, and was the first held outside of Iowa and New Hampshire.  Guests learned about Fred and his Presidential Exploratory Committee.  He spoke to the group, and even raised some money.  A good time was had by all!
