Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn (D-S.C.) is hosting a breakfast fundraiser Thursday for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) as she continues to recover from a gunshot wound she suffered in a January assassination attempt.
The fundraiser will be held at Democratic headquarters near the Capitol, according to an invitation obtained by Roll Call. Individuals who pay $1,000 will be listed as a host, as will political action committees that donate $5,000. The minimum donation is $250 for individuals and $1,000 for PACs.
Giffords, who has not yet announced her plans for next year, is a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Frontline program, which helps Members by expanding their fundraising and outreach operations. Clyburn is the latest in a line of Giffords’ colleagues to lend a fundraising hand.
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.
