About 250 attend Jindal event for McKenna
More than 250 people attended a fundraiser for Republican candidate for governer Rob McKenna in Spokane County Wednesday evening.
The event featured Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and was held at the home of Mike and Pam Senske, who live southeast of the city of Spokane, according to an invitation for the event. Mike Senske has long been active in Spokane-area politics and their son, Mike A. Senske is the chief executive officer of Pearson Packaging and was a member of the transition team for Spokane Mayor David Condon. (An earlier version of this post incorrectly listed the younger Senske as the host of the fund-raiser.)
McKenna's campaign had declined on Wednesday to say where the fundraiser would be held.
Attendees were charged $125 per person to attend a "pre-reception and photo opportunity" and $40 to attend an "outdoor dinner."
