Another example of Senator Richard Shelby "fat cats" paying to see him.
If you got the money you "might", "just might", get to touch his garmets.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and a top deputy are planning to help Sen. Luther Strange raise money this week for his closely watched primary runoff - even as Strange sides with President Donald Trump over McConnell when it comes to a venerated Senate rule.
As McConnell gears up to help Strange during the last stretch of his heated contest, Strange announced Tuesday that after previously supporting the preservation of the Senate’s 60-vote threshold on most legislation, he agrees with Trump that it should be ended.
McConnell is scheduled to appear at a high-dollar fundraiser on Thursday in Washington to benefit Strange, according to an invitation shared with The Washington Post by a person familiar with the event.
Individuals are encouraged to give as much as $2,000 and political action committees are being asked for as much as $5,000, according to the invitation, which was shared by the person on the condition of anonymity to describe a gathering that was not widely publicized.
