Republican Members Start Fundraising Drive

Nevada’s GOP Congressmen are wasting no time jumping into the 2008 money chase.

Today, freshman Rep. Dean Heller will try to replenish his campaign coffers.

House Chief Deputy Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) is the special guest at a $1,000-a-person luncheon at the Capitol Hill Club.

Heller, who had to fight through a bruising Republican primary before defeating Democrat Jill Derby in a targeted race in November, began the year with less than $26,000 in his campaign account.

Earlier this week, members of the construction industry hosted a $1,000-per-political action committee breakfast for Rep. Jon Porter.

The fundraiser, which was hosted by PACs representing roofers and the National Association of Home Builders, among others, also benefited Rep. Ron Lewis (R-Ky.).

Porter’s 3rd district, based in suburban Las Vegas, is a classic swing district Democrats have targeted ever since it was created after the 2000 Census.
