Marco Rubia, a Republican Party superstar and Florida senator, will be the main attraction at a Richmond fund-raiser for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli.

The Cuccinelli campaign announced the event late Friday.

It brings together Cuccinelli, a conservative running for governor in a state with an evenly divided electorate, with Rubio, a 2016 presidential prospect who has been tagged by some Republicans as too moderate on immigration.

A flyer for the event posted on the Hanover County Republican Party's website says a "business roundtable" and a photo opportunity for high-dollar donors will precede the luncheon.

A spot at the luncheon, which is being held at the Marriott in downtown Richmond, costs $50. But those who donate $1,000, $2,500 or $5,000 get tables of 10 at the lunch and a certain number of VIP photos with the celebrity politicians.

Those who give $10,000 or $25,000 get spots at the roundtable, according to the flyer.
