GOP FUNDRAISER
New US House majority leader to raise money for Kentucky Republicans

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 23, 2014 11:26 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Newly-elected House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will raise money for Kentucky House Republicans trying to gain control of the state's lower chamber for the first time in nearly 100 years.

A spokeswoman for the Republican Party of Kentucky confirmed the fundraiser will happen on July 19th in Bowling Green.

McCarthy was elected the new House majority leader last week to replace Rep. Eric Cantor, who was defeated in the Republican primary by Tea Party favorite Dave Brat. Kentucky House Majority Floor Leader Jeff Hoover said party leaders have been working on getting McCarthy to come to Kentucky for a few months not knowing he would soon be the second most powerful person in the House.

Kentucky Republicans need to pick up at least five seats to win a majority.
