Former U.S. Sens. Bob and Elizabeth Dole hosted a fundraiser at their home last night for Republican Pat McCrory, reports Jim Morrill of the Charlotte Observer.
The Doles hosted the former Charlotte mayor at their condo in the Watergate in D.C., allowing McCrory to tap into some Washington donors.
McCrory is an unannounced candidate for governor, hoping for a rematch of his 2008 race against Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue.
The cost of Tuesday's reception: $4,000 a couple or $2,500 per individual.
"A lot (of people) have been invited, I'm just looking forward to seeing a lot of good friends," said Elizabeth Dole. "Pat is ... a very articulate guy with a good message."
