The scoop from Washington

Duckworth, Schneider, Foster, Bustos, Harriman get boost at DC fund-raiser

| No Comments

A week after they were nominated in the March 20 Illinois primary, the candidates in the top Illinois House Democratic races hit Washington on Tuesday for a fund-raiser headlined by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team and co-hosted by Illinois congressional Democrats.

Tammy Duckworth, Brad Schneider, Bill Foster, Brad Harriman and Cheri Bustos for Congress benefited from the fund-raiser, with tickets ranging from $250 to $5,000 for Political Action Committee "hosts."

All but Bustos attended the reception, at the Capitol Hill headquarters of the Democratic political operation. The Illinois five are part of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's "Red to Blue" program, making them a high priority nationally. Democrats see the Illinois House potential pick-ups as key to Democrats taking control of the House.
