TORONTO - Mayor Rob Ford says a $300-per-person campaign fundraiser at his mom’s house was a “huge” success.

People dressed in formal wear as well as jeans and Birkenstocks schmoozed and mingled Thursday night inside Diane Ford’s expansive Etobicoke home.

“We weren’t where we are now in 2010,” the mayor told reporters outside the home after the event.
