Speaker Boehner In Western NY To Aid GOP's Collins
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - House Speaker John Boehner plans to attend a fundraiser to help boost the re-election campaign war chest of a Buffalo-area Republican congressman.
The former chairman of the Erie County Republican Party tells WGRZ-TV that Boehner is scheduled to attend Wednesday evening's event for Rep. Chris Collins of Clarence. The fundraiser is being held at a private home in the town of Hamburg, south of Buffalo.
It's the Ohio Republican's second appearance in five days at a fundraising event for an upstate Republican congressman. On Saturday night, Boehner attended a fundraiser for Rep. Chris Gibson of Kinderhook that was held at a private home in Ulster County.
