McGavick to get fundraising help from senate leader

Posted by David Postman at 2:02 PM

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist will be in the state later this month to raise money for Republican Senate candidate Mike McGavick.

Frist headlines a $100 a head lunch event in Spokane on Aug. 14. The fundraiser is hosted by Rep. Cathy McMorris and a group of local doctors. That night Frist will be at the Rainier Club in Seattle. That'll cost $500 a head and is sponsored by, among others, Washington State Medical Association executive director Tom Curry, Premera senior vice president Jack McRae and Dr. John Vasko, a director of Joe Fuiten's Faith & Freedom Network and also headed a 1995 anti-gay rights initiative to the Legislature.

Local Democrats just put out a press release with a variety of attacks on Frist, leading with his leadership role in the move to have Congress intervene in the Terry Schiavo case.
