Palin Ally Malek To Host Fundraising Dinner for Blunt

Republican kingmakers Fred Malek , an ally of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and power lobbyist Charlie Black are co-hosting a fundraising dinner for Rep. Roy Blunt’s (R-Mo.) bid for Senate in 2010.

Malek, a businessman who served as a top adviser to several former GOP presidents, hosted a dinner for Palin earlier this year on one of her rare trips to Washington, D.C. Malek has defended Palin and even served as an intermediary between her another Senate candidate, Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), who was seeking the former vice presidential nominee’s endorsement.

According to a copy of the invitation, Malek, Black and their respective spouses “invite you to an intimate dinner in honor of” Blunt. The Dec. 10 event, for which tickets cost between $1,000 and $2,400, will be held at Malek’s home.

Blunt is facing Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D) in what is expected to be one of the most competitive Senate races of the 2010 cycle.
