RNC’s Priebus helps RI GOP raise money for legislative candidates

June 28, 2012

Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, was the headliner for a mid-day state GOP fundraiser at Hemenway’s Restaurant in Providence.

State GOP chairman Mark Zaccaria says proceeds — which were expected to hit a target of $5000 — will go to Republican legislative candidates. The event was closed to media.

Zaccaria says the stop by Priebus marks his first visit to Rhode Island. The RNC chairman is due in Newport later today for a strategy session with Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, Zaccaria says.

While the state GOP expected to run 40 to 50 legislative candidates, about 60 met yesterday’s filing deadline, Zaccaria says.
