Rep. Diaz-Balert throws meat-and-greet fundraiser

So a meat-centric fundraiser seems apropos. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.)is celebrating his birthday — and raising campaign cash — at a Wednesday get-together at Fogo De Chao, the downtown Brazilian steakhouse that’s home of an all-you-can-eat protein orgy. “This is a FUN time,” promises an invite. And lest copious quantities of animal, served “gaucho style” on large skewers, isn’t alluring enough, there’s even more enticing flesh to press. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), National Republican Campaign Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Tex.) and House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) will be on hand, too.

Sounds like some serious fundraising chops.
