Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will hold a retreat in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, this weekend with donors to boost two Democratic Senate campaigns: Rep. Gary Peters’ bid in Michigan and Sen. Al Franken’s re-election in Minnesota.  

According to an invitation obtained by CQ Roll Call, the Lake Tahoe Retreat runs from Aug. 15 through 17 at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino in Incline Village. The required contribution to attend is $10,000 with checks made payable to Searchlight Lake Tahoe Victory Fund, Reid’s joint fundraising committee. So far this cycle, Searchlight Lake Tahoe Victory Fund has contributed $19,698 to Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., and $20,888 to Sen. Mark Begich, D-Ala., both of whom have competitive re-election bids this cycle. It also gave $27,060 to the Searchlight Leadership Fund, Reid’s leadership PAC. A spokeswoman for Franken confirmed he would be attending. Peters’ campaign could not immediately confirm his attendance, and did not respond to further inquiries.  

Laura Matthews, who is listed as the contact on the invitation, did not return request for comment.  

The Michigan race is rated Leans Democratic , and the Minnesota race is rated Democrat Favored by the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
