Tillis headed to DC for Rove-sponsored event

House Speaker Thom Tillis will attend a Washington meeting next month hosted by the political committee associated with Karl Rove, and meant to showcase Republican Senate candidates.

Tillis is scheduled to appear at a reception on Oct. 3 that is being planned as part of the American Crossroads Summit, the super PAC formed by Rove, the former chief strategist for former President George W. Bush.

He is listed in a reception with the "top 2014 Senate candidates.'' along with Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Steve Daines of Montana, and Mike McFadden of Minnesota. The event will be held at the House of Sweden. Then is he scheduled to attend a cocktail reception at Four Seasons Hotel that includes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.

American Crossroads spent about $105 million in independent expenditures in the 2012 election and Crossroads GPS spent $70.8 million.

Tillis is one of several Republicans seeking to unseat Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan next year.
