An invitation to a fundraiser for Rep. Chris Gibson's (R) campaign references investor Sean Eldridge (D), asking Gibson supporters to demonstrate that "the 19th District is not for sale." Eldridge, the wealthy husband of Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, hasn't officially launched a campaign yet, although he has started raising money for his potential challenge of Gibson.

As the invitation demonstrates, Republicans are eager to use Eldridge's wealth and ability to self-fund against him if/when he officially joins the race.
