Senator John Ensign (R-NV) “is holding a fundraiser at the National Republican Senatorial Committee headquarters on Thursday, March 3,” the Washington Post reports.
Suggested contributions range from $500 to $2,500. Ensign himself used to be chairman of the committee, but national Republicans have done little to help the senator since he admitted to having an affair with a former aide. His fundraising has been anemic and he faces a looming Senate ethics investigation. Committee officials note the building is open to any Republican senator and that the event is not being hosted by the NRSC.
