RENO (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner is in Reno to raise money for Nevada Republican congressional candidate Mark Amodei.
The Las Vegas Sun reports Boehner was speaking Friday at a private $5,000 and $10,000 per-head plate breakfast. No public appearances were planned.
Amodei faces Democrat Kate Marshall and two others in the Sept. 13 special election to fill Nevada’s open 2nd Congressional House seat.
The seat became vacant when Republican Dean Heller was appointed to the Senate following the resignation of John Ensign.
The winner of next month’s election will have to run again in 2012 to retain the seat.
