Cantor stars at two Collins events in Amherst

 By Robert J. McCarthy

    Chris Collins benefited from one more Republican celebrity aiding his fund raising efforts Wednesday when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia starred at two events in Amherst.

    Erie County Republican Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy said late Wednesday Cantor was in town and ready to preside over a $1,000 per person event at the home of businessman Robert Fox, followed by a $150 per person affair at Sonoma Grille.

   Cantor is no stranger to the Western New York GOP fundraising scene. He has previously been in town to help Republican congressional candidates Christopher J. Lee and Jane L. Corwin.
