GOP House Speaker John Boehner fundraises for himself in Minneapolis

Posted by: Allison Sherry under National campaigns, Republicans Updated: July 29, 2014 - 3:22 PM

WASHINGTON -- GOP House Speaker John Boehner is throwing himself a party in Minneapolis during the August Congressional recess.

Helping him bring in cash are Republican Reps. John Kline and Erik Paulsen -- both considered safe in their re-elects this fall. 

No word on why Boehner isn't in Minnesota to help bring money in for Stewart Mills or Torrey Westrom. The two Republicans are hoping to unseat Democratic Reps. Rick Nolan and Collin Peterson in the 8th and 7th Congressional Districts respectively. Both races are considered close nationally.

NRCC Chairman Greg Walden told reporters Tuesday that Westrom is Peterson's "nightmare."
