We found it ironic to get a release from the BOISE Visitors and Convention Bureau promoting an event in NAMPA. The BCVB gets funding from the Greater Boise Auditorium District to promote local events.
This time they are pushing the October 17 gathering of Republican has beens at the Idaho Center in Nampa, Idaho. Doors open at 7:00 AM. The show is from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The DAILY PAPER has a good explanation of the event which is some sort of “motivational” gathering.
Here is a sample of the menu and prices:
VIP & VIP All Access Passes–
VIP – Breakfast and Photo with Steve Forbes (Includes private lunch) [$195.00]
VIP – Lunch with Opening Remarks and Photo with Sarah Palin [$195.00]
VIP – Evening Reception and Photo with Rudy Giuliani (Includes private lunch) $195.00
VIP All-Access (Includes events with Rudy Giuliani, Sarah Palin and Steve Forbes)
It has all the ring of a candidate fundraiser, but the names have changed. Perhaps the methods are the same for all campaigning.
