Camp Won't Add Fundraisers While SupComm Is Meeting

Republican House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp said Wednesday that he won't schedule any more fundraisers while the Super Committee is meeting, but will attend those that were already on his calendar, my colleague Sue Davis reports. 
The move comes as good government groups are lobbying the 12 members of the Super Committee to eschew all fundraising during their deliberations. On Monday, the Boston Globe reported that Democratic Sen. John Kerry will forego fundraising while sitting on the committee.

More on Camp via Davis: 

Camp, R-Mich., told reporters on Wednesday that he is mindful of the appearance of conflict for members of the deficit committee hosting political fund-raisers and will not add any additional fund-raisers to his schedule while the committee is meeting. However, Camp said he would make good on all political fund-raisers scheduled before he was appointed to the committee by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.

"My view is, anything that was scheduled before, I'm going to continue with that schedule," Camp said, "[But] I'm not going to add new items of a fund-raising nature."
