So sometimes even in a Congressman in a relatively safe district needs to hold fundraising events in places that he would otherwise, of course, have no reason to visit.
So the invitations are out and Billy Long will hold a "Weekend in Las Vegas" September 30-October 3 at the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel.
Any high rollers who want to contribute $2,500 to Long's campaign account can do so by sending their RSVP to Ali Schultz of White Birch Strategies, a recently-formed LLC that specializes in fundraising, event planning, and political finances..
And don't worry. The rooms have been secured and they only cost $305 a night.\
And the Wynn Las Vegas has shops, spas, salons, fitness centers, pools, and spas. Not that Billy Long or any of his contributors would ever have anything to do with it, but the Wynn Las Vegas also has gambling.
No word on when Long will schedule his Weekend in Branson fundraiser.
