U.S. Sen. Richard Durbin is scheduled to appear at a fundraiser in Hawaii in February for U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz.
The Illinois Democrat is the Senate majority whip, the number two leadership position in the Senate.
The fundraiser is set for Feb. 18 at Harbor View Center. The suggested donation is $500 to $2,600.
Schatz is facing U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
