Former Tennessee senator and Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson will speak at two fundraisers for Republican congressional candidates later this month.
Thompson will speak at an Oct. 22 fundraiser for 8th Congressional District candidate Tim Bee. The next day, he will headline a fundraiser for 5th Congressional District candidate David Schweikert.
The $900-per-person breakfast reception on Oct. 23 will raise funds for Schweikert's campaign against first-term incumbent Democratic Rep. Harry Mitchell. A $2,300-per-person VIP reception before the breakfast will include a photo opportunity with Thompson.
Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl and his wife, Caryll, will also attend the fundraiser with Schweikert, a former Maricopa County treasurer. The fundraiser will be at the Paradise Valley home of Nancy and Lyle Campbell.
