Dent Puts a Little English in His Latest Fundraiser

Posted April 17, 2007 at 9:54am

Rep. Charlie Dent (R) is scheduled on Wednesday to hold a Washington, D.C., fundraiser featuring his Keystone State colleague, Phil English (R), as the special guest.

The 8-9 a.m. event at Charlie Palmer Steak on Capitol Hill, is asking for $2,500 for those wanting to be a member of the host committee, and requesting $1,000 from political action committees and $500 from individuals.

Dent is expected to be a major Democratic target in his quest for a third term. Running against a political unknown last year, he took just 54 percent of the vote. His Lehigh Valley district has leaned Democratic in the past few presidential elections.
