Boehner headlining Biggert, Dold fund-raisers Thursday

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) hits the Chicago area on Thursday to headline fund-raisers for two Illinois House Republicans in big races--Reps. Judy Biggert and Bob Dold.

Biggert is facing off against former Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill) in the west suburban 11th congressional district. Boehner is the draw at a cocktail reception at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill. The tab ranges from $75 to $5,000.

Dold is running against Democrat Brad Schneider in the north suburban 10th congressional district.
Boehner keynotes a Dold luncheon in downtown Chicago. Tickets are $500 to $1000 per person including a private reception.

The third big area race pits Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) against Democrat Tammy Duckworth. Boehner does not have a Walsh funder on Thursday--but did headline an event for him last March in Washington.

As of June 30, the stats, based on the Federal Election Commission reports.
