Politico’s Olivia Beavers reported that House Republicans held a conference on Tuesday morning which consisted of a 15 minute fundraising auction for McCarthy’s chapstick. Greene won the auction, according to Beavers, with a bid of $100,000.
“Others bid on it as well, but MTG ultimately won,” Beavers reported on Twitter. “And as bidding went on, McCarthy would sweeten the deal, throwing in agreeing to attend a dinner with donors/supporters for whoever wins, Spox confirmed. The chapstick specifically was a Rep. Aaron Bean campaign chapstick.”
