Crist's DC fundraiser



Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist made a brief visit to the nation's capital today for a fundraiser in his honor.

The $500-a-plate breakfast was hosted by a slew of lobbyists, prominent Republicans including former U.S. Sen. Connie Mack and the Florida GOP delegation.

House members in attendance included: U.S. Reps. C.W. "Bill" Young, Mark Foley, Katherine Harris, Jeff Miller, Mario and Lincoln Diaz-Balart. Sen. Mel Martinez was scheduled to appear but had to cancel at the last minute because of an appearance by President Bush at the Capitol.

The Buzz would love to tell you what actually happened inside the room on the 9th floor overlooking the Capitol but Crist does not allow reporters inside his fundraisers.
