GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers may have run as a political outsider, but she is quickly getting into the swing of things when it comes to insider D.C. fund raising.
She has scheduled a high dollar fund raising luncheon at the Capitol Hill Club for January 26th with political action committees being charged $2,500 or $1,000, according to an invitation.
Ellmers, a Tea Party favorite who knocked off Democratic Rep. Bob Etheridge in November, has already taken Democratic flak for participating with a dozen other Republican freshmen members in a fund raiser sponsored by America's New Majority featuring country singer LeAnn Rimes.
Also scheduled to old a DC fund raiser is Republican Rep.Walter Jones who has a “North Carolina Winter Barbecue” scheduled for January 24th at the San Manuel Townhouse on Capitol. The price of admission ranges from $500 for individuals up to $2,500 for political action committees.
