A lot of hullabaloo has been made of late about U.S. Senate candidate Jane Norton’s D.C. fundraisers. Less well known are the plans of 7th Congressional candidate Lang Sias. Four days after the 7th CD Assembly — in which Sias will struggle against the strong grassroots base of support for conservative Ryan Frazier to secure 30 percent and get a place on the ballot — Sias is planning a D.C. fundraiser at the Capitol Hill Club with John McCain.
The following is the email from Lang Sias:
As many of you know, I’m running for Congress in Colorado’s 7th Congressional district. We’re making some very good progress on the ground; we picked up a bunch of endorsements over the last week, and are charging into the Congressional district convention next Thursday. I was honored to receive Senator McCain’s endorsement at the start of my campaign, and it has been great to have his support as well as the support and assistance of many of you over the last five months.
I wanted to give all of you a heads-up about an event we’ll be holding in DC on May 24. Senator McCain will be the special guest of the evening. I hope you can make it – it would be great to see you there!

If the fundraiser proves relevant after this coming Thursday’s assembly, one thing is for sure: it won’t help to change the fact that more of Sias’ campaign money has come from the Beltway than from Colorado.
