Cantor may be outgoing, but he’s still raising bucks for his pals

Just because a relative handful of Republicans tossed him out of a job last week, outgoing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has no hard feelings toward his soon-to-be-former minions. In fact, seems he’s working hard for them.

Cantor, a prolific fundraiser — perhaps second only to Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) in the House,  is on tap to be “a special guest” at a fundraiser July 9 for Rep. John Carter (R-Tex.). Our invite notes helpfully that Carter is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.

It’s only $2,500 to be a PAC “co-host,” $1,000 for a PAC, and if you just want to hang out n the Capitol Hill Club with John and Eric, just $500.
