Washington (CNN) Vice President Mike Pence raised a very good $1 million for his leadership PAC on Tuesday evening during a summer season soire in Washington, according to an origin close to Pence.
The President’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, made a guest appearance in order to introduce the vice president on the event.
Participants enjoyed sweeping views of the Capitol building from the rooftop of a creating nearby.
Pence could be the first sitting vice president to make his own leadership PAC, called Excellent America Committee, which allows him to boost money for congressional candidates as well as the reelection of President Donald Trump.
The vice president spoke for approximately 15-20 minutes, according to the source within attendance. Since the Great America PAC is designed to further the administration’s plan, Pence mostly talked about needing a lot more Republicans elected in 2018 midterms.
In one point he joked which he hoped that he doesn’t have to be the tie-breaking vote again (which he had in order to cast on the Senate floor previously in the day) after 2018.
