Country Club Rockefeller Republican John Danforth to host fundraiser for Country Club Rockefeller Republican Jeb Bush at Country Club in California. Hoping Republicans would lose in 2006 elections Danforth said, "I'm counting on nausea"

Hoping Republicans would lose at the polls in 2006, Danforth said, "I'm counting on nausea."

1/13/15, "Jeb Bush heads to California fundraisers, some hosted by former Romney donors," CNN, Maeve Reston

"The Friday night reception and discussion will take place at the Eldorado Country Club in Indian Wells and will be limited to 100 guests, who were asked to contribute $1,250 per individual or $2,500 per couple to Bush's new Right to Rise PAC. 

Former Missouri Sen. John Danforth, who was considered as a vice presidential running mate for President Bush and later served as his special envoy to the Sudan and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, will be on the honorary host committee for the evening Indian Wells fundraiser, as well as the earlier events to benefit the Bush-aligned super PAC. In 2011, Danforth endorsed Romney and joined him at a fundraising event in St. Louis, praising him as having shown the "skill and leadership ability to ensure that the U.S. remains the strongest and most respected nation in the world."

Other alumni from President Bush's administration on the honorary host committees for Friday's events include former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Rockwell Schnabel; former U.S. Ambassador to Germany William "Tim" Timken and his wife, Sue; former U.S. Ambassador to Spain and former owner of the Seattle Mariners George Argyros (a longtime GOP fundraiser who helped Romney raise money in California during the 2012 cycle)."...via Rush Limbaugh show
