House Speaker John Boehner is coming to Fresno for a fundraiser hosted by businessman Richard Spencer and his wife, Karen, as well as three of the Ohio Republican’s closest congressional allies -- Devin Nunes, Jeff Denham and David Valadao.
The March 13 event, billed as a “private luncheon,” will be held at Spencer’s Harris Construction, near Fresno Yosemite International Airport. It will benefit a joint fundraising committee composed of Boehner, the National Congressional Campaign Committee, The Freedom Project and the Ohio Republican Party State Central & Executive Committee.
Co-chairs of the event include Granville Homes President Darius Assemi, businessman Bob Smittcamp, businessman Ed Donaghy and his wife Judy, Sanger rancher John Harris and his wife Carole, and Mid Valley Disposal’s Jay Kalpakoff, among others.
It will cost $1,000 per person just to get in the door. Those who give $5,000 will get two tickets and a photo with Boehner. The top tier, which are the co-chairs, contribute or raise $10,000 and get two tickets to a private roundtable briefing with Boehner, as well as four tickets to the main event as well as the Boehner photo op.
