Ohio: Ohio Delegation Hosts Fundraiser for Wulsin

Posted April 22, 2008 at 6:47pm

Physician Victoria Wulsin, the Democratic challenger to Rep. Jean Schmidt (R), is getting some fundraising help from Buckeye Democrats in Washington, D.C., later this month. In a high-dollar fundraiser sponsored by Members of the Ohio Democratic delegation, Wulsin will hold the reception at a private home on April 29.

Ticket prices for the reception range from $250 to $5,000. Ohio Reps. Marcy Kaptur, Tim Ryan, Zack Space, Betty Sutton, Stephanie Tubbs Jones and Charlie Wilson are all listed on the invitation.

Schmidt narrowly defeated Wulsin in 2006, a year in which Democrats made huge gains across the state. Wulsin is making her third attempt at the seat since a 2005 special election in the district that traditionally votes Republican.

Wulsin outraised Schmidt in their state’s most recent reporting period, putting $225,000 in her campaign bank account between Feb. 14 and March 31. Schmidt raised $152,000 in that time period.
