Rudy Giuliani in town Monday night to raise money for Reichert

Posted by Nicole Tsong

Former Republican presidential candidate and New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is in town Monday night for a $1,000-per-person fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Auburn.

Reichert is facing a challenge from businesswoman Suzan DelBene, a Democrat, in his fight for re-election to the 8th Congressional District seat, which covers east King and Pierce counties.

Reichert and Giuliani first met when both received awards from the Washington Policy Center, said Reichert spokesman Darren Littell. Reichert was King County Sheriff at the time.

In 2007, Reichert endorsed Giuliani for president, and Giuliani made him national co-chair of law-enforcement for his campaign. Giuliani bowed out after the Florida primary in 2008 and endorsed eventual Republican nominee John McCain.

Last week, Reichert also was endorsed by the Washington Education Association and the National Education Association. Cathy deJong, president of the Auburn Education Association, said in a statement that Reichert has been committed to reducing class sizes, improving school safety, providing tax relief to teachers and making college more affordable and accessible.
