Tom Cotton, first out with a fund-raiser

Posted By on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 at 12:26 PM

The Center for Public Integrity reports that federal candidates are already raising money, including a number with no opponents in 2016.

U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton is being credited with being the first federal candidate to circulate a fund-raising solicitation after the Nov. 4 election, with an invite Nov. 5 to an event at Johnny's Half Shell in Washington last Thursday.

Here's a picture of the invite: $500 minimum contribution sought.  A PAC could "host" for a mere $5,000.

The event was styled as a "debt retirement event." We'd earlier mentioned his e-mail solicitation saying he needed $176,000 to close out his winning campaign over Mark Pryor.
