An HOH favorite, Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-Miss.), will hold a pre-Valentine’s Day fundraiser with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), according to the “Majority in Mississippi” blog.
The reception will be held Feb. 4 in the Congressman’s home district. One source speculated that this could be an indication the National Republican Congressional Committee is concerned about the freshman’s re-election bid. Or maybe not.
It may be nothing more than serendipitous scheduling for Palazzo. It seems the No. 2 House Republican already had a trip planned to the Gulf Coast, and because he would be in the neighborhood, well, they may as well raise some money.
