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. (Al­bany Times Uni­on)

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.
