PT Round-up: Ed Gillespie throws a debt retirement party, Jeb Bush keeps fundraising like crazy, Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Ted Cruz head to New Hampshire and a Wisconsin judge parties hard

Hey, party people, hey! As just about everyone on the East Coast keeps their fingers crossed for an end to winter weather, one New Yorker is practically betting on temperatures thawing out the snowy doldrums. Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin throws his annual spring reception Thursday night at beer distributor Clare Rose’s East Yaphank headquarters. It’s a minimum of $125 to get in the door, but event organizers suggest writing that check for $250 – or $2,600 to be a co-host. Our only question: How much beer does that get you? Party Time has our eye on yet another busy week ...

Schock Watch: Where has Rep. Aaron Schock been throwing fundraisers all these years?

The hits just keep on coming for Rep. Aaron Schock, the Illinois Republican whose once-shiny star has been tarnished by the office renovation heard ’round the world. Since the initial article last month about Schock’s “Downton Abbey”-inspired congressional digs, other stories have shown he spent boatloads on travel, rented private aircraft and has been lax (at best) about reporting gifts and spending. Party Time has found the four-term congressman a bit elusive, too, at least when it comes to collecting invitations to his fundraising events. Since coming to Washington in 2009, Schock has had fewer than 40 fundraisers since he ...
