Entrenched House Republicans are therefore being leaned on to pony up for the Republican running in a special election for that seat.
Buried in that Politico story is this paragraph:
NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions hailed Virginia Rep. Virginia Foxx as a fundraising maestro, and announced that he was dedicating a suite at NRCC headquarters in her name. Foxx, Sessions noted in the meeting, raised $250,000 more than she was expected to last election cycle. She did this by calling donors individually from the NRCC, not -- as most members do -- by cutting a check from her reelection account.
The woman evidently enjoys getting on the phone and making cold calls for cash. Which is what it takes to get a suite "dedicated" to you.
