Lawmakers may not be in Washington this week, but that isn’t stopping them from fighting for their seats.
Check it out:
There are multiple fundraisers scheduled for the coming week — including for the vulnerable Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.).
Landrieu is facing a tough battle against Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), but so far she’s winning the war-chest race, taking in nearly $9.5 million through the end of last year, according to the most recently filed forms available from the Federal Election Commission.
Cassidy raised more than $5.1 million during the same period.
One of the newer members of the Senate, Democratic Sen. Corey Booker (N.J.) will be throwing a happy hour in Los Angeles on Thursday in hopes of padding his re-election campaign’s account.
