Under the Dome

Country club fundraiser for House Republicans

The N.C. Republican House Caucus Leadership fund will be raising money at the Carolina Country Club next month.

The Aug. 27 shindig is billed as a reception honoring the GOP House caucus. Chipping in $10,000 will get you 12 tickets to the VIP and general receptions, with less expensive options available down to $150 single tickets.

No word on who the VIPs are, but it wouldn’t be surprising if U.S. Senate candidate and House Speaker Thom Tillis was among them. The leadership fund is part of the N.C. Republican Party.

Tillis has raised almost $278,000 in his bid to become the Republican nominee to challenge Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan. There is another $150,000 in his state campaign account.

State Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger – who has not yet committed to the race – has raised $475,000 in his state account.

Hagan raised just over $2 million this most recent quarter, for a total of $3.7 million raised so far this year. She has $4.2 million cash on hand.
