Looking to raise $100 million in August, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is tapping real estate bigwigs and other high-profile players in the Hamptons. The Democrat is going on a three-day Hamptons fundraising blitz starting on August 28 that includes nine bashes, including one hosted by singer Jimmy Buffett at his Montauk home, according to Politico. Real estate moguls Jonathan Tisch and Bill Rudin, meanwhile, are co-hosting a dinner where tickets are going for $33,400 a head, as TRD told you last week. Tickets for a Sag Harbor fundraiser hosted by philanthropist Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel and her husband Carl are reportedly going for $2,700 a pop — and up to $100,000 for lunch with Clinton, according to the New York Post. And, as TRD also reported last week, GOP nominee Donald Trump is mining the Hamptons for cash as well with fundraisers hosted by Douglas Elliman Chairman Howard Lorber and others. [Politico] and [NYP] — Cathaleen Chen
