Subject: travel pool report #5/DSCC reception start
Motorcade pulled up to the Dallas home of Dallas lawyer Peter Kraus at 6:10pm. Remarks start 45 minutes later.
This is a $15,000 pp event.
Roughly 100 people seated in rows in a big room. Obama flanked by a US flag and Texas flag.
Intro from host Lisa Kraus includes a dig at Sen. Ted Cruz and others in a “reckless” band of lawmakers. “I want to personally thank you for standing up to this faction and for saying no you can’t. No you can’t shut down the government because you don’t like a law.”
