Fairfax GOPers mingle with congressmen to raise money

Anita Kumar

More than 100 Fairfax County Republicans went on a field trip Thursday night to Capitol Hill to raise money for the county's GOP committee.

They mingled with members of Congress -- many of the so-called Young Guns -- including Reps. Mike Pence, chairman of the House Republican conference, Kevin McCarthy, chief deputy whip, Mike Rogers (MI), Peter Roskam (IL), Paul Ryan (WI), John Shimkus (IL), Joe Wilson (SC), Frank Wolf and Eric Cantor, both of Virginia.

Anthony Bedell, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, said the event offered Republicans an opportunity to meet members of Congress that they often see on TV. Lawmakers were able to stop by the Capitol Hill Club between votes.

The committee raised about $15,000 with tickets selling for $50 to $500.

Certain qualifying candidates, not sitting members of Congress, are called "Young Guns." You should read what you link to.
