BREAKING: New House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Touches Down In Phoenix Tomorrow For $500/Person Fundraiser For Tobin/McSally/Rogers JFC - $40,200 Maximum (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

New House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is hoping to raise a lot of money for the GOP's three Arizona challengers in swing districts when he drops by Phoenix's Seasons 52 restaurant for lund tomorrow (Sept. 24).

State House Speaker Andy Tobin, Martha McSally and Wendy Rogers have formed the "Arizona Congressional Victory Fund" joint fundraising committee with the National Republican Congressional Committee ("NRCC"), which means that although the lunch ticket tomorrow is $500, the maximum contribution for an individual or political committee is $40,200.

The full invitation is below.  Tobin, McSally and Rogers are trying to unseat Democratic incumbent Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1), Ron Barber (D-CD2) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9), respectively.  The first two races are rated as pure toss-ups by national rating services, while CD9 is listed as leaning Democratic.

Seasons 52 is owned by Darden Restaurants, a national restaurant group that also owns Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants.
