GOP Candidates Flock to Hill for ‘Cattle Call’ Fundraiser

Posted April 28, 2004 at 5:48pm

In what one GOP fundraiser called “a massive cattle call,” House Republicans sought to raise thousands of dollars for GOP candidates Wednesday night.

The event, sponsored by the National Republican Congressional Committee, was part of a two-day Washington training seminar for 35 to 40 Republican candidates. The event was held at the Capitol Hill Club.

Republican candidates facing tight races were to be introduced to more than 100 of K Street’s most generous campaign contributors, including scores of Republican lobbyists and corporate political action committee directors.

Carl Forti, a spokesman for the NRCC, described the event as a “get-to-know-you session.”
