Donald Trump speaks at $100-per-person event near Boston

Posted:
NORWOOD, Mass. (AP) -- Donald Trump is holding a $100-per-person campaign event -- which he says isn't a fundraiser -- outside of Boston as he backpedals on his previous pledge not to accept contributions for his campaign.
   The Friday evening event is being held at the home of local car dealer Ernie Boch Jr.
   For a $100 contribution, guests were treated to cocktails, live music, food from chef Tony Ambrose and a speech from the billionaire businessman and Republican candidate.
   But Trump insists the event wasn't actually a fundraiser. He says the money raised was only going to offset the cost.
   Trump said in his announcement speech that he would be funding the campaign solely with his own money and bragged that he's "really rich."
   He's now accepting low-dollar contributions.
