Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will appear at two fundraisers in August for Sen. Dean Heller -- one North and South -- to help his campaign against Rep. Shelley Berkley.
The Las Vegas invite for the Aug. 16 event, which I have posted at right, is for an event that will be hosted by, among others, Las Vegas Sands operative Andy Abboud, Caesars Entertainment and ex-state senator turned Gaming Commissioner Randolph Townsend.
There will also be an event later that day at Lake Tahoe -- also posted at right -- featuring the Florida senator and GOP rising star and hosted by Reno Mayor Bob Cashell, prominent businessman T.J. Day and others at the home of former U.S. Public Printer (and fleeting U.S. Senate candidate) Bruce James
Both are for a joint committee for Heller and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
