Bush and Rubio to fundraise for candidates in Illinois, Virginia



Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio continue to fundraise for other candidates.

On Sept. 18, Bush will appear at a fundraiser for Bruce Rauner, who is running for governor of Illinois. Tickets are $500 to $5,000, according to the candidate's website.

On Sept. 23, Rubio will host a dinner reception in McLean, a Northern Virginia suburb, for congressional candidate Barbara Comstock. "It should raise more than $80,000 for her race against Democrat John Foust in one of the nation’s most expensive and closely watched House races," reports the Washington Examiner. Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are also going to head fundraisers for Comstock.
