WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will headline Democratic Rep. Michael Michaud’s 12th — and final — lobster bake fundraiser on Tuesday.
The lobster bake will take place at Credit Union House on C Street, in North East Washington, D.C.
“House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi will be joining us as the Special Guest,” wrote Lindsay Angerholzer of Angerholzer Broz Consulting (ABC), in an email obtained by The Maine Wire.
“As always, we will be driving the lobsters down from Maine on the day of the event, and we will have plenty of Maine microbrews on hand for you to enjoy,” she wrote.
Pelosi, whose career has been marked by a hyper partisan tenure has House Speaker, is an odd partner for Michaud, who has billed himself as a moderate heading into the 2014 gubernatorial election. But as a Democratic leader, her presence will attract all manner of special interest groups and lobbyists looking to rub elbows with political bigwigs.
ABC is the largest fundraising firm on Capitol Hill and works for Democratic members of Congress, PACs, trade associations, corporations and non-profits.
Those with an appetite for lobster must be willing to donate a minimum of $250 to Michaud’s gubernatorial campaign in order to attend.
