Perennial Target Shays Cranks Up Fundraising

Posted March 20, 2007 at 10:58am

Rep. Christopher Shays (R) is busy collecting money for what likely will be another tough re-election fight next year.

Shays had brutal back-to-back campaigns in 2004 and 2006 and is not likely to get a break if national Democrats can help it. Former New York Rangers goalie Mike Richter (D) is contemplating a run against him.

On Thursday morning Shays will be with Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) at the Capitol Hill Club to raise money.

No specific amount is requested for fundraiser attendees.
