Congressmen James Langevin and David Cicilline will host a March 4 fundraiser in Rhode Island for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, though not confirmed, is expected to be in attendance.
Pelosi has appeared at Rhode Island fundraisers in the past, including Jamestown events in both 2009 and 2010.
Raising money for fellow Democrats can pay dividends.
Former Rhode Island Representative Patrick Kennedy - who retired last year, paving the way for Cicilline's election - had a successful run as chairman of the DCCC from 1999-2001 and was awarded a plum post on the House Appropriations Committee.
