Politico’s lobbying-and-fundraising tip sheet, Politico Influence, reports that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld will help Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation raise money next week in Washington.
Rumsfeld is listed as a “special guest” for a defense industry breakfast on Oct. 27. The fundraiser will be hosted by Buzz Hefti.
Another multimillion dollar campaign is underway for the seat held by Allen. Two Democrats are raising hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to unseat West, and West himself continues to be one of the top fundraisers in Florida.
