George W. Bush to hit the Washington fundraising circuit for brother

(CNN)George W. Bush is bringing his fundraising power to Washington next week and enlisting help from his former colleagues.

The former president will headline a fundraiser for his brother's presidential campaign while he's in town for a Bush-Cheney alumni event, according to an invitation obtained by CNN.
The 43rd president has headlined a number of events for his brother in recent months, including as recently as Sunday in Denver. He's also lent his name to fundraising solicitations via email, and he's set to appear at a donor retreat, along with the Bush brothers' father, next weekend in Houston.
Both events take place on October 29, one day after the next Republican debate. Hosted by the Bush Center, the alumni reception will be held in Georgetown for those who were part of the Bush administration and now resides in the Washington-Virgina-Maryland area.
    In the invitation, those same alumni are notified of the fundraiser later that night for Jeb Bush's campaign and encouraged to attend.
    The $2,700 per ticket fundraiser will take place at the Washington home of Paul Horvath, also in Georgetown. Those on the host committee include Andy Card and Josh Bolten, who each served as chief of staff to President Bush.
    Bush alumni are also presented with an opportunity to volunteer to collect signatures over the next few weekends in Virginia to get Jeb Bush on the primary ballot.
