AUGUSTA (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is coming to Maine to raise money for Republican Gov. Paul LePage's re-election campaign.
Bush will headline an event July 2 at a hotel in Kennebunkport, where his father, former President George H.W. Bush, has a seaside estate at Walker's Point.
A number of Republicans are listed as hosts of the event, including moderate former U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe along with current Sen. Susan Collins. Also listed as hosts are two candidates who lost to LePage in the GOP primary in 2010: former Maine treasurer Bruce Poliquin and businessman Les Otten.
A private session and photo opportunity costs $2,000 per person or $3,000 per couple. General admission, an hour after the private session begins, costs $150 per person.
