Republican Andy Harris is getting help from big-name party operatives as he builds his campaign bankroll for a rematch against freshman Rep. Frank Kratovil Jr. in Maryland.

On Wednesday, Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, who is a former Maryland lieutenant governor, will head to the Eastern Shore for a $250-per-head event in Chestertown.

Then, on Dec. 2, Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price of Georgia is heading to Cambridge, Md., to headline a $125-per-person reception for Harris.
