RUBIO, COTTON TO HEADLINE FUNDRAISER FOR MANDEL: Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) will headline a fundraiser on Monday for Ohio Secretary of State Josh Mandel, who’s seeking a rematch against Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown in one of next year’s most watched Senate races. A number of K Street types are among the hosts, including Kirk Blalock of Fierce Government Relations, Rob Chamberlin of Signal Group, Cesar Conda of Navigators Global, Jenn Higgins of Chamber Hill Strategies, Matt Keelen of the Keelen Group, Stephen Replogle of Cove Strategies and Geoff Verhoff of Akin Gump. Mandel could still face a primary against GOP Rep. Pat Tiberi, who’s built a substantial campaign war chest. Here’s the invitation.
