Comstock, who served as Director of Research and Strategic Planning at the Republican National Committee and contributed mightily to President Bush's 2000 victory, is also a Hill veteran with tours of duty as Chief Counsel/Chief Investigative Counsel and Senior Counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and worked for Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.).

The Clintons of Chappaqua:
Looking at HILLPAC's munificience, the New York Post 's Orin/Morris write: "Last night, the New York senator was already looking to 2006 as she kicked off her re-election bid with a posh party feting deep-pocketed donors of campaigns past — and, hopefully, future.

The guests were immediately greeted by valet workers dressed in white dinner jackets and quickly whisked inside." LINK
