Bilbray Fundraiser On Tap for Friday Evening

Rep. Brian Bilbray (R) is scheduled to pass the hat on Friday at a suburban San Diego fundraiser that costs a relatively modest $100 per person.

The Escondido, Calif., event, set for a private residence, features a reception and dinner with Bilbray, who won his 50th district seat last year in a contentious special election to replace the now-jailed former Rep. Duke Cunningham (R).

Bilbray, not known for his fundraising abilities, banked $225,000 to close the second quarter. The 50th district leans Republican and Bilbray is not expected at this point to have much trouble winning re-election in 2008.
