Congressional Candidate Bowen to hold Fundraiser

Gerard Bowen, Jr, a candidate for the Republican nomination in the race for 4th district congressman, will be holding a fundraiser on June 14th.
I ordinarily would not publicize a political fundraiser, but in this case I will make an exception. This is not to say that I will support Mr. Bowen - I fully intend to support the Democrat. Paul Carmouche will likely be that candidate, although I would be very comfortable with John Milkovich. The Republicans have had their turn and have failed miserably.
If I were going to support a Republican, however, it probably would be this one.
Chris Gorman has raised a lot of money and is running an effective campaign. Dr. John Fleming of Minden is also pushing hard, and has deep pockets. Jeff Thompson has Jim McCrery's blessing and should benefit financially in a big way.
This brings us to Bowen, who has virtually no institutional support. This is his biggest asset as far as I am concerned. While he faces an uphill battle, I believe that if he generates enough grassroots support he could possibly emerge in a runoff.

From Bowen's website:

You’ll notice I’m not charging hundreds of dollars per plate like most politicians do. I need contributions, but I refuse to alienate the very people that I am trying to represent. To buy tickets with a check, mail check to:
