Black, Blackburn, Fincher tie fundraisers to Taylor Swift concert

Three Tennesseans are among 19 members of Congress holding political fundraisers at a Taylor Swift concert in Washington, D.C., according to a posting on the Sunlight Foundation’s Political Party Time blog.

The Tennessean has an article focused on U.S. Reps. Marsha Blackburn of Brentwood and Diane Black of Gallatin. Fellow Republican U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher of Frog Jump has a similar gathering.

It cost $1,500 for a ticket, or $5,000 for a group of four, to watch the Swift concert at Black’s gathering. It is slightly more expensive to attend the event in Blackburn’s box with a price tag of $2,000 for one ticket or $3,000 for two.

(Note: The price for a single ticket to the Fincher event is $2,500 or you can get two for $4,000, according to the blog post.)

…Swift has not made her own political affiliation public, and members of both political parties are hosting events.

…Swift, who is signed to Nashville’s Big Machine Label Group, is headlining a concert at Nationals Park in Washington. On StubHub.com, tickets to the show ranged from $194 to $1,116.
