U.S. Rep. and well-known loony Republican Michele Bachmann will be coming to Florida at the end of the month. She’ll be headlining a rally and fundraiser for Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-Palm Harbor).
She also comes cheap. Only $2o.10 for a ticket! Now I know some might think the amount of $20.10 is for the election year 2010. That may be the case, but I doubt many would pay top dollar to see Rep. Bachmann i other circumstances. In fact, I don’t know anyone at all who would fork over $20.10 either. It will be interesting to see how many do.
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota will be headlining a rally and fundraiser for Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, on March 31.
For $20.10, his campaign site says, people can attend see the Republicans at Bayanihan Arts Center, 14301 Nine Eagles Drive, in Tampa.
Bilirakis has $337,485 on hand and so far faces little known challenger Arthur Richardson III, a Republican, who unsuccessfully campaigned for mayor of Tampa when Pam Iorio skated to re-election in 2007.
The Bilirakis family have had a pretty good hold on that seat for years. Makes you wonder if there’s something we don’t know about that would make Bilirakis desperate enough to need Bachmann to raise funds for him?
