Rep. Schweikert Raising Money With Big Dog Tea Party Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

Arizona Rep. David Schweikert (R-CD6) is joining fundraising forces with Tea Party powerhouse (libertarian wing) Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT).  Fellow Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is also part of the new joint fundraising committee.

Schweikert - an overwhelming favorite to easily win re-election this fall (he will face non-fundraising Democrat John Williamson in the GOP-dominated district) - has been focusing his fundraising emails on the need to help elect other conservatives to continue battling President Obama.

The four Congressmen filed a statement of organization for the "Lee Cruz Massie & Schweikert Victory Committee" this past week, and list Sen. Cruz's Treasurer as the man in charge of collecting and distributing the funds for the JFC.

Along with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), they make up the big six for the major Tea Party player FreedomWorks, and were featured in FW President Matt Kibbe's "libertarian manifesto" earlier this year.

No word yet on how the new JFC is going to raise monies for Schweikert and the other recipients.
