“Speaker Paul Ryan will headline an April 18 fundraiser for” former state Sen. Debbie Lesko (R), “according to a copy of an invitation to the event. … Attendees to the Capitol Hill fundraiser are being asked to give up to $2,500. … Party officials say their internal polling shows Lesko with a comfortable lead over” emergency room physician Hiral Tipirneni (D). “House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy … is expected to travel to Arizona on Lesko’s behalf.” (Politico)

ON BOARD. EMILY’s List endorsed Tipirneni on Wednesday. President Stephanie Schriock: “She immigrated to this country when she was a child and has lived the American dream firsthand. She will be a strong advocate for working families to have the same opportunities as she’s had.” (release)

ON THE AIR. Tiprineni released a new ad, tying Lesko to a “federal investigation into illegal money laundering.” The spot casts Tipirneni as a physician problem solver, “not a politician.”
