John Boehner, the speaker of the U.S. House, attended a Republican fundraiser in Anchorage Tuesday evening.
At a hillside home, the fundraiser's invitation included some of the state's top Republican names, such as congressman Don Young, Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan and former Alaska GOP chairman Randy Ruedrich, among others.
A small group of demonstrators gathered with signs outside the home. At least one man said he was protesting Alaska's congressional delegation's stance on recent immigration legislation.
The Ohio Congressman has spent part of the week touring western Alaska with Congressman Young, who said the pair went on a successful fishing trip together.
