The latest on California politics and government

House Minority Leader John Boehner is in Sacramento tonight to attend a fundraiser for Republican Rep. Dan Lungren, one of the Democrats' top targets this November.

"Lungren's targeted, so we appreciate the leader taking the time to come through and help with the fundraising," said Rob Stutzman, Lungren's campaign consultant. "Obviously, we're getting outraised."

The fundraiser will take place at the home of Angelo Tsakopoulos --- not the Angelo Tsakopoulos who's one of the biggest Democratic donors in the state.

"It's the other Angelo, the Republican Angelo," said Stutzman. If it were the elder member of the family, he said "that would be a little man-bites-dog story."

Stutzman said Boehner's visit comes on the heels of a fundraiser last week for Democratic opponent Ami Bera that drew House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland.

"Obviously, the race is high-profile, and it's getting leaders from both parties to help," Stutzman said.
