GOP Fundraiser In St. Louis Conflicts With World Series

October 28, 2011

The St. Louis Cardinals' exhilarating come-from-behind win last night over the Texas Rangers moves the World Series into a final Game 7 tonight - but that's also the same night House Speaker John Boehner was slated to be in St. Louis for a fundraiser for the National Republican Congressional Committee.

The St. Louis Beacon reports the fundraiser at the west St. Louis County estate of former U.S. Ambassador Stephen Brauer was scheduled for Friday evening, but with the Cardinal faithful hoping their team can pull off an unlikely World Series comeback, attendance could be down - or they could be huddled around TVs tuned to FOX there instead.

One GOP source speculated the fundraiser could be shifted to accommodate those who might want to head to Busch Stadium - including the Speaker.

Boehner spokesman Corey Fritz could only confirm that Boehner would be in the Gateway to the West for events benefiting both the NRCC and the Boehner for Speaker committees.
