Vice President Dick Cheney will headline a fundraiser next month for state Sen. Peter Roskam (R-Wheaton) in his campaign to succeed retiring U.S. Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Ill.) in the west suburban 6th District.
According to invitations sent to Republican boosters last week, the event will be held March 13 at Medinah Banquets in Addison, with tickets going for $250--$2,100 for a photo and private reception with the vice president.
Meanwhile, according to a new CBS News poll:
Just 18 percent said they had a favorable view of the vice president, down from 23 percent in January.
Does having Cheney at this event help or hurt Roskam?
