Boehner Pushes Members for Campaign Cash

Posted December 16, 2009 at 4:28pm

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) called on Members who still haven’t paid their dues to the National Republican Congressional Committee to “do the right thing” and pony up the cash before Congress adjourns for the year.

“As you know, we’ve been making a push for Member transfers to the NRCC over the last several months,” Boehner wrote in an e-mail Wednesday to the Republican Conference. “And since there’s a possibility that today may be our last day in Washington for the year, I am calling on you to do the right thing and write your check to the NRCC today.”

Boehner wrote that every Member is obligated to make sure that the NRCC has the resources to continue its fight to hold the Democratic Congress accountable in 2010.

“I’m proud of all we’ve accomplished together and am honored to be with you in our fight for freedom and reform,” Boehner continued. “So for the last time this year I’m asking you to honor your commitment to our team and write your check to the NRCC today.”
