Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is in President Obama's hometown on Monday for a high-priced fundraiser for House Republicans.
The funds raised at the event go to Friends of John Boehner —the speaker's political action committee, the National Republican Congressional Committee, the Ohio Republican Party State Central & Executive Committee, and The Freedom Project, a political action committee of which Boehner serves as chairman.
The requested donations range from $5,000 to $50,000.
Boehner is not the only high-profile Republican to fundraise in Chicago. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), often mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2016, has also fundraised in the Windy City.
