Responding to Washington Examiner inquiries, a spokesman for Democratic Rep. Paul Hodes’ Senate campaign confirmed that “yes, Paul did attend” the weekend fundraiser hosted by trial lawyers in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Hodes, who currently represents the northwestern half of New Hampshire,  joined Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., and several other Democratic Senate candidates at an event that critics say demonstrates the cozy relationship between the Democrats and trial lawyers.

This weekend run to Canada could be embarrassing for Hodes, given his claim (made while celebrating the DISCLOSE Act’s passage) that he “[fights] to end the influence that corporate and foreign special interests have in American elections.”
