Groups from opposite sides of the political spectrum are holding toy drives Tuesday, making sure Santa knows no partisan boundaries.  

In Washington, Reps. Barbara Lee, D-Calif.; Karen Bass, D-Calif.; and Dina Titus, D-Nev., are teaming up for the Capitol Hill Toy Drive to benefit the National Foster Young Institute. The group gives toys to D.C. area foster children and disadvantaged youth. The drive will take place in the Rayburn Gold Room from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Beyond the Beltway, the Greater Cleveland Young Republicans are taking their Holiday After Party and GOP Debate Watch Party as an opportunity to collect toys. The party in Cleveland starts at 8 p.m., where attendees can enjoy free admission, free food and a cash bar while watching Sens. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and the rest of the GOP presidential candidates hash it out in Las Vegas.  

The Cleveland Young Republicans are also giving party-goers incentive to donate. If people bring in a new, unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots, they will receive a complimentary drink ticket. Their tagline: “Party Like a … Republican!”
