John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi send cash to Oregon’s special election

January 22, 2012


House members from both parties are pouring cash into this month’s Oregon special election, newly released contribution reports show.

Democrat Suzanne Bonamici, the frontrunner in the race to replace former Rep. David Wu, raked in checks from 30 House Democrats totaling $91,500, according to her most recent report, which details all donations made from Oct. 20 to Jan. 11. Republican Rob Cornilles took in checks from 18 House Republicans totaling $40,500 during the same period.

Bonamici raised funds from top House Democrats including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who sent the Oregon state senator a total of $10,000, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, who contributed $4,000, and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel, who cut a $5,000 check. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent $6,000.

Rank-and-filers also chipped in. Bonamici received $1,000 contributions from a slate of members, including Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind, Colorado Rep. Jared Polis and California Rep. Jackie Speier.
