Cheney to Host for Steele
Vice President Dick Cheney will host a reception for Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele in April, the latest in a series of fundraising events hosted by President Bush and his team.
The $1,000-per-person Cheney event will be held at the D.C. home of Juleanna Glover-Weiss, a former Cheney aide, and her husband Jeffrey Weiss, a GOP lobbyist.
The invitations went out at the same time the Steele campaign sent out a fundraising letter that included a photo of him posing with President Bush.
His first fundraising event as a candidate was hosted by Karl Rove. More recently, President Bush came to Maryland and raised roughly $500,000 for Steele's senate campaign. Earlier this month, he held an event that was headlined by White House Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr.
Steele's campaign officials have said they have no intention of shying away from the president, even though Maryland is a blue state where polls show Bush is not particularly popular
In Steele's letter, he advises potential donors that while "the mainstream media tells us red states must be red and blue states must be blue," that's not how it is "on the Main Streets of Maryland."
