Freshman Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) will be the special guest at a fundraiser on behalf of Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) scheduled to be held Sunday in Chicago, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
The fundraiser will be held at the home of Brad Lippitz and Yoni Pizer, Democratic donors who helped raised money for Baldwin’s campaign last year. The price for the fundraiser will range from $1,000 to $5,200 with proceeds going toward the Franken for Senate fund and Franken’s Midwest Values Political Action Committee, according to the Sun-Times.
Franken, who will be in attendance at Sunday’s fundraiser, will be up for re-election next year. A survey in January from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed the comedian-turned-lawmaker in a strong position to win a second term.
