Boehner in Iowa

Ohio Congressman John Boehner, the top Republican in the U.S. House, is in Iowa for a couple of fundraisers.  Tonight’s event, at a private home in Ankeny, is to benefit the NRCC.  Here’s (most of) the letter Congressman Tom Latham of Ames sent about it:

I am writing today to invite you to a very special reception taking place in Iowa on September 2nd.  My good friend – and the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives – Republican Leader John Boehner will be in Iowa for an important event benefiting the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
…I know that you are getting many requests for help these days.  But, I want you to know that I believe that this is one of the most important elections in nation’s history. We must elect at least 39 new Republicans to gain control of Congress and stop President Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s left-wing, jobs-killing agenda, and put forward better, common-sense Iowa solutions to the challenges facing families and small businesses.
The time to act is now!  

Boehner will be the main drawn for a private fundraiser tomorrow on behalf of Republican congressional candidate Brad Zaun.  Both Boehner events in Iowa are closed to the press.
