Rep. Jim Hansen, R-Utah, raised about $50,000 Tuesday night at a fundraising reception in the Capitol Hill Club. He was joined by his Republican colleagues, Sens. Jake Garn and Orrin Hatch, and Rep. Howard Nielson. Lobbyists from more than 30 corporations and other organizations attended the fete, which raised Hansen's campaign bankroll to more than $125,000, the congressman said.
Among those attending was Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative activist who battled the Equal Rights Amendment.
