Colorado's U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are teaming up to raise money to elect Republicans to Congress. Sarah Hunt, daughter of billionaires Phil and Nancy Anschutz, and her husband, Christopher, will host a private dinner at their Denver home on Aug. 17. Tickets range from $25,000 for a "VIP meeting," photo and reception to $2,500 per couple, for the reception only.
Gardner, who has been difficult for ordinary concerned citizens to reach of late, sent invitations to the high-dollar event through his re-election campaign. The beneficiary is the McConnell Gardner Victory Committee, comprising the McConnell Senate Committee, Cory Gardner for Senate and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
