FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS: Take Flake Out To the Ball Game (New Lyrics); Help Fund His 2018 Campaign

The non-partisan, non-profit Sunlight Foundation puts several nifty things on the internet in furtherance of their mission of using "cutting-edge technology and ideas to make government transparent and accountable."  Once of those ideas is "Political Party Time", where they aggregate campaign fundraising invitations.  Arizona's Politics will try to keep an eye on this and bring you Arizona-related items.  (If you happen to spot one before it is posted here, please drop me an e-mail.)

Take Flake out to the ball game,
Take along a lobbyist or two,
Give him more'n peanuts and Cracker Jack,
You don't care that its for 20-18.
Let's root, root, root for immigration reform,
If it stalls in the House it's a shame.
For it's ONE, TWO thousand, not more, 
At the old fund raiser!

Well, the House campaigns are already revving up, and there is even jockeying for the 2016 Presidential race.  But, here's a fun D.C. fundraiser for Arizona Senator Jeff Flake's re-election campaign.  He will presumably be running for a second Senate term in 2018.

But, hey, everyone understands that we live in an age of perpetual campaigns.  Flake's Re-Election Committee is already spending more than $22,000 per month (based on their recent quarterly filing).

If you attend this fundraiser on the 26th, please drop Arizona's Politics a line and let us know whether all of the attendees root for the Diamondbacks while the Senator is there, and then put on their Nationals' caps after he leaves!
