Republican congressional hopeful Jane Corwin is in Washington, meeting, greeting, making the rounds, and collecting a few dollars while she's at it.
Sources close to the Clarence assemblywoman say she is meeting with various funding types and representatives of political action committees in a time-honored ritual for rookie congressional candidates.
The highlight of her trip is a fundraiser Wednesday night at the Capitol Hill Club led by former Western New York Congressmen Bill Paxon and Thomas M. Reynolds. The event committee also includes Maria Cino, Dave Marventano and Sally Vastola, all former Western New York congressional chiefs of staff.
