Less than a week after endorsing Mitt Romney for president, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is once again throwing herself into the 2012 election, this time helping a super PAC raise money for female congressional candidates.
Rice will headline a fundraiser later this month at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., for ShePAC, an organization founded in February. As both a traditional PAC and a super PAC, the organization will directly fund campaigns for “principled conservative women” running for federal office and may also spend unlimited funds directly on the election, according to Yahoo! News.
In all, 50 female lawmakers and candidates have been invited to the June 25 event. Rice is also slated to give a foreign policy briefing, and will attend a VIP reception. The super PAC, which is an acronym for “Support, Honor and Elect,” has raised about $31,000 this year.
Tickets to the event range from $250 to $50,000.
