BUCKS FOR MCCAIN
Sen. John McCain on Wednesday personally appealed to an invitation-only meeting of some 50 possible supporters to sell $2,300 tickets for a March 21 reception at Washington’s Mandarin Hotel that he considers vital to his campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination.
McCain said the money raised for the dinner would be credited to the March 31 Federal Election Commission report on contributions, which he called “the invisible primary” to show fund-raising prowess.
Wednesday’s meeting, held in a non-government office building near the Capitol, was attended by both longtime McCain backers and new allies who supported George W. Bush against McCain in 2000.
