Real estate big wigs go politicking in the Hamptons

As the all-New York presidential election kicks into high gear, both major political parties are holding big-ticket East End summer fundraisers — and those in the industry are squaring off. Loewe’s Corp. co-chairman and Giants co-owner Jonathan Tisch organized a $33,000-per-guest Hamptons fundraiser for Hillary Clinton; not to be outdone, Douglas Elliman chief Howard Lorber, who donated $100,000 to Donald Trump’s campaign this year, is co-hosting a Trump fundraiser at the East End pad of Jets owner Woody Johnson. Call it a subway series of sorts. Meanwhile, a Southampton mansion at 42 Oceanview Drive will be party central for another Hillary fundraiser, this time hosted by Bill White, the chairman and CEO of Constellations Group, and Bryan Eure, a senior vice president at insurance brokerage Willis Towers Watson. That is, unless the home sells first. It’s on the market for $6 million. Could the buyer be a political party spoiler? [TRD] & [TRD] — Cathaleen Chen
