The Grand Junction Sentinel reports the Zakhem gave $400 to Rep. Bernie Buescher. Additionally, former GOP state representative Gayle Berry also gave money to Buescher.
From the report:
In his campaign finance filings, Buescher reported receiving $400 from John Zakhem, a Denver-based, Republican lawyer and former attorney for the Trailhead Group, a political campaign committee that targeted Buescher last year.
“(Zakhem) is perhaps as prominent a Republican as there is out there, and I was very pleased,” Buescher said. “I think that is demonstrative of the fact that I’ve been able to reach across the aisle and work with members of both parties.”
More than 30 percent of Buescher’s contributions, $1,150, came from lobbyists, including $100 from former Grand Junction Republican Rep. Gayle Berry, the documents show.
