House Republicans will wrap up their annual fundraising retreat Tuesday morning at the posh Homestead resort.
Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) also participated in part of the two-day event, which included golfing, swimming, hiking, seminars and meetings.
Last year, the caucus's sixth annual fundraiser at the four-star mountain resort in Hot Springs, raised about $500,000.
This year, the event has taken on added significance as Howell looks to pick up more seats in the 100-member House of Delegates in November’s elections.
Senate Democrats will host a similar retreat at the end of June, also at the Homestead.
