Its a big night in Washington: Pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg makes his debut at Nationals Park and primary results from Arkansas, California, Nevada and other states will be rolling in. But for a few Members of Congress, Tuesday night is all about music and fundraising checks.At least two Members are planning to hold fundraisers at Tuesday nights James Taylor/Carole King concert at the Verizon Center. Rep. John Hall (D-N.Y.) is offering premium seats for $500 and a VIP package for $2,500. (The invite promises exclusive Stage Seating designed to recreate the intimacy of the vintage Troubadour club amidst the excitement of an arena crowd!) A concert featuring 1970s-era musicians is a natural venue for Hall, who was a 70s rocker himself with the band Orleans. And while shes not a former rock star (at least that we know of), Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) is holding a fundraiser at the concert, too, offering seats for $2,500. Looks like the two will find out How Sweet It Is to be loved by lobbyists.Submit your hot tips, juicy gossip or comments here.Cant get enough HOH?
