Conrad Burns is back, getting in touch with the common people of Montana. Jennifer McKee reports in the IR that the Senator for the Saginaw Chippewas will soon be holding a fundraiser among the common people:
Republican Sen. Conrad Burns is hosting a fundraiser next month at the exclusive Yellowstone Club a high-end gated community near Big Sky which members must have at least $3 million in assets to join.
An invitation for the event called Burns Winterfest ’06 lists the price for admission at $2,000 a person or $4,000 for a political action committee.
Unfortunately, McKee let Burns spokesman Jason Klindt get away with this justification:
“You can expect this campaign to continue to raise the funds necessary to compete with out of state money,” Klindt said. “We have the obligation to defend the Senator’s record of delivering for Montana.”
Burns needs to compete with out of state money?
