Calif. tribe hosts dinner for Republican candidate
Monday, September 15, 2003

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians held a $25,000 dinner on Saturday for state Sen. Tom McClintock, a Republican running in California's recall election.

Chairman Richard Milanovich said the tribe is not endorsing anyone in the election. He has previously said he was upset that actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, considered the leading Republican, called tribes "special interests."

On Friday, the Morongo Band of Mission Indians held a dinner for U.S. Rep. Darrel Issa, the Republican who helped bankroll the petition to recall Gov. Gray Davis (D). The tribe has donated $18,000 on focus groups for McClintock.
