WASHINGTON – President Obama won’t be the only high-level political visitor to Minnesota next week. Republican House Speaker John Boehner will hold a fundraiser in Wayzata on Wednesday, Aug. 17.
According to an invite given to Minnesota Public Radio News, tickets for a round of golf at the Spring Hill Golf Club with the Speaker and a lunch cost $10,000, while lunch-only tickets run $1,000. Boehner’s hosts for the event are all four Republican House members from Minnesota, John Kline, Erik Paulsen, Chip Cravaack and Michele Bachmann.
Bachmann, who’s also running for the GOP presidential nomination is keeping a busy schedule. She’s in Iowa this week ahead of the Ames Straw Poll. Then early next week she heads to South Carolina for more campaigning before the fundraiser with Boehner.
