Speaker John Boehner hitting fund-raiser trail

| No Comments

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is hitting the fund-raising trail during the congressional summer break, headlining an event on Aug. 12 in the Chicago suburb of Hinsdale to benefit Illinois House Republicans federal court challenge to the Democratic-drawn new district map--with lines putting Republicans at a severe disadvantage. Boehner makes the appeal for the "Committee for a Fair and Balanced Map."

I'm also told that Boehner this month will "going out to support fellow Republicans," because he wants to be "as helpful as possible.

Both Boehner--and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and their Senate counter parts help raise money for individual House and Senate members and the campaign funds of the House and Senate GOP and Democratic political operations.
