A Minnesota House Republican fundraiser Tuesday night will feature Speaker Kurt Zellers and Majority Leader Matt Dean, but also up-and-coming GOP donor Brad Rixmann.
Rixmann owns PawnAmerica. Though Rixmann has previously given campaign donations to both Democrats and Republicans, he's recently started giving larger sums to GOP candidates and the party.
For instance, between 2010 and 2011, Rixmann gave the Republican Party of Minnesota about $110,000, according to campaign finance records.
The fundraiser will be held at Target Field, where the Twins will play the Chicago White Sox. The suggested donation is $1,000 per person, according to the invitation.
