SALT LAKE CITY -- Of all the 535 members of Congress, a Sunlight Foundation report shows Bob Bennett ranks fifth for the number of political fundraisers in the past year.

A lot of people remember the event with Mitt Romney here in April that cost at least $1,000 to get in the door. But Bennett got creative, too. How about "Flies and Drives"--a fishing and golf event in Park City that cost $2,000 a person. There was also a not-so-romantic "Winter Weekend" with Bennett in Park City last winter.

He also was a fixture at D.C. restaurants. He held six fundraisers at the Charlie Palmer steak house.

The foundation's numbers show Bennett had more than twice the number of fundraisers the rest of the Utah delegation had, combined.
