Mother-to-Be Hosting Fundraiser on Thursday

Most expectant mothers are running around making sure their nurseries are fully equipped.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R) is raising money.

McMorris Rodgers, who is expecting her first child next month, has a fundraiser scheduled for Thursday. That should quell speculation — or Democratic wishful thinking — that the 37-year-old Congresswoman plans to retire to become a full-time mom.

The fundraising breakfast is taking place at the Bellevue Harbor Club. Suggested contributions start at $75.

Since ousting then-Speaker Tom Foley (D) in 1994, the Spokane-based 5th district has been reliably Republican. No Democratic candidate yet has come forward to challenge McMorris Rodgers, who is in her second term.
