House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will be the featured guest next week at a Greenwich fundraiser for Elizabeth Esty, the Democratic candidate for the 5th District congressional seat.
Pelosi, the most powerful Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives, is a prodigious fundraiser. Last month, she held 77 fundraisers in five states and in Washington, D.C., raising $7.2 million for Democratic candidates and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
The Esty campaign declined to say who is hosting the fundraiser, saying only that it is in a private residence in Greenwich.
House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia have helped Esty’s rival, Republican Andrew Roraback, raise campaign cash in the state.
