While Nassau-wide campaigns intensify, county Democratic chairman Jay Jacobs will also host a fundraiser in his home next Sunday for New York City Democratic mayoral nominee Bill de Blasio. Jacobs has known de Blasio for many years from political circles around Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Jacobs, who held a fundraiser for de Blasio when his chances "didn't look so good" last year, said: "I knew he had a message, one that I happened to like -- the idea that you have to bring back the American dream."

Raising $25,000 makes one a "chair" for the evening's 90-minute event, according to the invite, and it's $1,000 a head for guests. Maximum individual contributions under city limitations total $4,950.
