Hayes’ Donors to Witness Big Easy March Madness

Interested in witnessing some March Madness down in the Big Easy — and helping a Republican House Member who won re-election last year by the skin of his teeth?

Then Rep. Robin Hayes (R) wants to see you in New Orleans Friday.

Hayes has a private suite set aside at the New Orleans Arena Friday afternoon, where donors can take in some first-round NCAA men’s basketball tournament action: first Memphis vs. North Texas, then Nevada vs. Creighton. Tickets cost $500 for individuals and $2,500 for political action committees.

Hayes, who represents a competitive Charlotte-area district, defeated teacher Larry Kissell (D) by just 300 votes in 2006, and Kissell is seeking a rematch next year.

Kissell has a fundraiser of his own scheduled for March 24, coinciding with a North Carolina Young Democrats convention in Greensboro. Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.), one of the leading recruiters for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is headlining the event.
