Rossi's Texas fund-raising tour

Posted by Jim Brunner

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dino Rossi is getting some help for his campaign fund this week in a series of Texas fundraisers.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, Rossi is among five GOP Senate hopefuls getting some Texas hospitality and cash. The paper reports:

"U.S. Sens. John Cornyn of Texas and John Thune of South Dakota will raise money across Texas this week with five Republicans who hope to become senators themselves.

Cornyn and Thune will be guests as fundraisers for Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Carly Fiorina of California, Dino Rossi of Washington and Marco Rubio of Florida.

Their Texas tour will kick off at the Headliners Club in Austin on Wednesday. Over the next two days, they will raise money at the San Antonio Country Club, at a Houston home, at the City Club of Fort Worth and at a Dallas home."

Rossi is trying to overcome incumbent Democratic Sen. Patty Murray's big head start in fundraising. Murray's campaign started the month with about $3.2 million in the bank, compared with Rossi's $1.8 million.
