Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice answers questions from reporters at Mississippi College in Clinton, Miss.
ShePAC, the political action committee that debuted in February to help elect Republican women, announced Rice’s first-ever political fundraiser in Washington, D.C., Tuesday morning in an email to supporters with the headline: "Condi's Coming To Washington."
Rice, who has been mentioned as a dark horse choice for GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential slot, will speak at the Capitol Hill Club June 25.
All 29 Republican female members of Congress and nearly two-dozen female candidates running in the 2012 cycle have been invited to attend the evening fundraiser. Sources say Rice will give a private foreign policy briefing for those who attend.
Tickets to the “DC Kickoff Reception” range from a mere $250 to $50,000 per person.
This event also marks the first ever fundraiser for ShePAC -- Supporting, Honoring & Electing Republican women. The group has endorsed such candidates this year as Deb Fischer (NE), Mia Love (UT), and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch (WI).
