    If you missed attending the Katy Perry concert with former Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock, you may still be in luck. You can now go to a Taylor Swift concert with another member of Congress from Illinois.

    The Washington Post reports that at least four lawmakers have planned fundraisers at Swift's upcoming concert at Nationals Stadium in July. Among those lawmakers are Rep. Cheri Bustos, the democratic representative of Illinois' 17th congressional district.

    Tickets to see the pop star with a member of Congress are going for $2,500, the Post reports. In addition to Rep. Bustos, at least three other lawmakers have planned the same fundraiser: Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) and Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.).

    To attend the July 13 show with Rep. Bustos, donors can make their checks out to "Friends of Cheri Bustos," a political action committee for the representative.

    The 17th district covers cities including Rock Island and Moline and portions of Peoria and Rockford. Bustos, who won re-election in 2014 against challenger Bobby Schilling, is a former journalist and East Moline City Council member. She first assumed office in 2013.
