Boehner to hold Montana fundraiser for Daines

Daines has been seriously considering a Senate bid and has also been helped with fundraising by Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who held a Washington, D.C., fundraiser for him, as well as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who has donated to his campaign.

The fundraiser will take place on Tuesday in Bigfork, Mont., according to KPAX.

Boehner's fundraiser is a sign that House Republicans aren't ready to let Daines run for higher office — and may have some concerns that if he does run, an open seat contest could be competitive in the Republican-leaning state.
