Sen. John McCain to Appear at Fundraiser for Patrick Murray

Republican congressional candidate Patrick Murray is calling on one of his party’s biggest names to help with fundraising.

Murray, facing a steep uphill battle in his fight to unseat incumbent Democratic congressman Jim Moran, will be joined by part-time Crystal City resident and one-time Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain at a private fundraiser in Alexandria next week.

Tickets for the fundraiser, which will be held Monday night, range from $250 to $2,400. Republican operative Charlie Black and former Ross Perot presidential campaign spokesperson Orson Swindle are among the bold-faced names on the guestlist.

Sen. McCain isn’t the only family member helping Murray. His younger brother, Joe McCain, was an early supporter of the campaign. At Murray’s primary victory party, quoted the younger McCain as shouting: “I’m so tired of losing! We’re going to win this one, I know it!”
