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?

Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
