Democratic Louisiana Gov. , who signed one of the strictest laws in the country last week, is holding a high-dollar fundraiser for another who opposes abortion rights, according to an invitation obtained by HuffPost.
The event, set for Friday night at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans, will raise money for Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, who is running for his state’s governorship. Hood is defending his state’s own strict anti-abortion laws in the courts.
It’s unclear who will attend the fundraiser ― the invitation notes a host committee “is still in formation.” Hosts have to donate at least $5,000 to Hood’s campaign, according to the invite. The minimum donation to attend is $500.
