Here is the latest news of fundraisers for statewide candidates this fall:
- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will headline an Aug. 25 fundraiser in Louisville for David Williams, the Republican candidate for governor. His wife, Robyn Williams, said on Pure Politics she expects that event to help inject more enthusiasm into her husband’s effort.
- Republican candidate for Attorney General Todd P’Pool will get help from a Virginia’s Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli at a Sept. 29 fundraiser in Elizabethtown. Cuccinelli filed a suit last year challenging the constitutionality of the National Health Care Reform Act that requires individuals to have health insurance.
