Fundraiser for Fla. Senate Primary Held in Knoxville

From Georgiana Vines’ political notebook:
A fundraising reception for former Ruth’s Chris Steak House Chief Executive Craig Miller, one of five candidates in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate in Florida, will be held Thursday in Knoxville and co-hosted by restaurateurs Bill Regas and Sandy Beall.
A $100-minimum donation is requested by the 27-member host committee at the 5:30-7:30 p.m. event at Ruth’s Chris Steak House at Volunteer Landing. Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey will be a headliner, Regas said. A private dinner will be held afterward with Ramsey, Miller and Regas for $1,000.
“Why would anyone in Tennessee want to support someone in Florida?” Regas asked rhetorically. “Congress is having a hard time agreeing on the time of day. It’s important to our country to have people with extensive business experience in the Senate.”
