Former Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao (La.), one of two House Republicans to lose their re-election bids in 2010, is holding a debt retirement reception in February.
For a suggested contribution of $500, supporters can meet with Cao in New Orleans on Thursday, Feb. 3.
The most recent campaign finance report showed Cao was $34,000 in debt.
Cao won the heavily Democratic seat in a runoff in December 2008, defeating then-Rep. William Jefferson (D). In 2010, Cao ran an unusual campaign, running ads showing him with President Barack Obama. Cao lost to now-Rep. Cedric Richmond (D), 65 percent to 34 percent.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
