Rove joins Cuccinelli at a fundraiser for Virginia Republicans

Anita Kumar

Karl Rove, the man once known as George W. Bush's brain, is coming to Virginia for a fundraiser for the state Republican party.

Party officials expect as many as 300 people to donate up to $60,000. The June 15 event will be in McLean, but the party isn't releasing the location of the house just yet. Could the party be worried about protesters?

Rove, who just released a new book Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight, will be joined by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and party Chairman Pat Mullins.

"The AG is excited to be helping raise money for the party in this important election year,'' Noah Wall, Cuccinelli's political director, said in an e-mail to us. "We've agreed to help the party with a few fundraisers this year, so please stay tuned for the others."

Here's one Virginia politico unlikely to attend: Former congressman Tom Davis, who is mentioned in not-so-flattering terms in Rove's book.

So where will Gov. Bob McDonnell and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling be June 15, which just happens to both of their birthdays? Not at the fundraiser.

Bolling, as we previously told you, will be holding his first fundraiser since forming his campaign committee to run for governor in 2013. McDonnell will be attending his twin sons' high school graduation in Henrico County.

I hope that there are lots of photos of Karl Rove and Ken Cuccinelli together for future reference.
