Freshman Rep. Peter Roskam (R) is being feted at a fundraiser celebrating his assignment to the House Financial Services Committee.

Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.) is slated to be the special guest at a dinner tonight at Charlie Palmer Steak, hosted by Erick Gustafson, a lobbyist for the Mortgage Bankers Association.

Political action committees are asked to donate $1,000 for the cocktail reception and dinner.

Roskam won a hard-fought battle for his 6th district seat against celebrated Iraq War veteran Tammy Duckworth (D) in November.

Democrats zeroed in on the suburban Chicago district as a pickup opportunity when former Rep. Henry Hyde (R) announced that he would retire at the end of the 109th Congress.

It is unclear if national party leaders will devote the kind of resources in 2008 that Duckworth received from them in the previous cycle.
