Golf, wine and sunshine: House Democrats’ big fundraising week

Do you want House Democrats to win the majority? Do you like spending thousands of dollars to hang with members of Congress, with the hope that they might hear you on the one or two issues you care about?

Terrific. Get your checkbooks ready.

April 4: Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.) has a PAC trip at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. It will cost you $2,500 per golfer. Now listen, this may be a pretty decent value. Greens fees at Pebble are north of $600. If you get a round on Spanish Bay and Spyglass, Panetta is coming through for you. We hope you have better weather than we did.

April 5: In the mood for some wine with a Democrat from Wisconsin? Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) is hosting an event at The Lodge at Sonoma Resort. Tickets here will range from $1,500 to $5,000.

April 7: Do you want to hang out with Reps. Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.) and Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.) in Miami? What could be better than that? And then you can follow that up with a PAC trip for Gottheimer’s Jersey Values PAC over the weekend.
