Boehner headed to Boise for Simpson fundraiser lunch next Monday

U.S. House Speaker John Boehner is headed to Idaho for a campaign fundraiser for 2nd District Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson on Aug. 26, reports Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey, with plans calling for a $50-a-person lunch at the Boise Centre. The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. and tickets are being sold through Simpson’s campaign; Boehner, Simpson and Idaho Gov. Butch Otter are scheduled to speak. Simpson faces a GOP primary challenge from Idaho Falls attorney Bryan Smith, who's being backed by the national group the Club for Growth. You can read Popkey’s full post here.
