CLEVELAND, Ohio -- White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is headlining a Washington, D.C. fundraiser for Ohio Sen. Frank LaRose next week, according to a flier for the event.

The March 1 cocktail reception carries a minimum donation of $50 to attend, while attendees can be a "sponsor" for $250 or a "host" for $1,000. The event will be held at a D Street townhouse near the U.S. Capitol. Spicer, who's recently become famous as a pugnacious spokesman for President Donald Trump, is listed as a "special guest" on the invitation (PDF).

LaRose, a Copley Republican, said he met Spicer while helping with President Donald Trump's inaugural festivities in January. He also knows his wife, Rebecca Spicer, through her work as a spokeswoman for the National Beer Wholesalers Association.

LaRose's family owns House of LaRose, a Brecksville-based beer distributor, and his father and grandfather both have been involved with NBWA leadership.

"I was pleasantly surprised that he was willing to do it," LaRose said. "He's an interesting character and a recognizable face in our current political discussion."

The cocktail reception is an annual occurrence -- last year's headliner was Sen. Rob Portman, LaRose said. The event precedes an annual D.C. event, organized by a group of Ohio universities, that recognizes Ohio's official founding as the country's 17th state.

LaRose is viewed as a likely 2018 candidate for Ohio Secretary of State - current Secretary of State Jon Husted is term-limited.

Other possible Secretary of State candidates include Republican State Rep. Dorothy Pelanda, of Marysville, and Democratic State Rep. Kathleen Clyde, of Kent.

On Thursday, LaRose said he continues to "thoughtfully consider" a run.

"The challenge that any candidate has is that you have to raise money," he said. "It's the worst part of running for office, but it's also necessary."
