House Majority Leader Cantor to raise funds for Collins

By Robert J. McCarthy
 
   It's big guns season in the hot congressional race between Republican Chris Collins and Democrat Kathleen C. Hochul in the 27th District.

   As former President Bill Clinton stumps Rochester Friday for Hochul, Collins will host House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia on Oct. 31 for two major fundraising events in Amherst.

   The first is a $1,000-per-person event at the home of Robert and Lisa Fox in Williamsville; the second is a $150 general reception at Sonoma Grille on Main Street.

   Cantor is no stranger to the congressional fundraising scene in Western New York. He headlined local events for former Rep. Christopher J. Lee in 2009 and for Jane L. Corwin in her unsuccessful effort against Hochul in the special election of 2011.
