Ehlers Hosts Low-Dollar Fundraiser in His District

Posted May 8, 2007 at 10:32am

Rep. Vernon Ehlers (R) is hosting a breakfast for his 3rd district constituents May 14 in Grand Rapids.

For $25 voters can get a Congressional update from the man who sits in the seat once held by the late President Gerald Ford.

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee officials have said they will target GOP-held seats in the Wolverine State especially hard after seeing a number of political novices almost pull off upsets against established incumbents in 2006.

Even Ehlers’ district, which went 59 percent for President Bush in 2004, is in the DCCC’s sights, committee spokesmen have said.
