Beebe to power Mike Ross fund-raiser

Mike Ross, whose Democratic gubernatorial campaign opened with a $2 million jump start, is undoubtedly expecting a haul from this $100-and-up fund-raiser later this month headlined by Gov. Mike Beebe. It takes $1,000 to get into the VIP reception with the governor and the former congressman. A $4,000 contribution gets ou "host" status. It would appear to bear a host list of 170 or so, many of them couples. If the invite's financial terms are strictly followed that means the advance haul is already substantial, particularly if both spouses in a listed couple have maxed out with contributions to both primary and general election campaigns. Reports will tell.

A $1 million haul for a candidate without a primary opponent could go toward some party-building work at other levels on the ballot, I'd guess.

I'm going to try to blow up the list of hosts on the jump.
