Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006 at 6:49 pm in congressional district 11.
On the same day House GOP Majority Speaker John Boehner will prime the cash pump for Rep. Richard Pombo in Stockton, U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., will appear at a fund-raiser for Congressional District 11 Democratic challenger Jerry McNerney.
Suggested contribution levels for an evening of political discourse and cabaret in Orinda at the Masonic Center are: champions, $2,100, includes reception with Boxer; prizefighters, $1,000; contenders, $100; and union members, $50. (For details, click here. or call 925-556-7077.)
Boxer is very popular in the Bay Area and her name will undoubtedly help McNerney raise much-needed money in a race against a well-funded incumbent.
Unlike Pombo’s event in Stockton, though, It doesn’t appear that anyone plans to protest outside the Masonic Center.
