House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will attend an anti-tea party group event at a Florida Ritz-Carlton next weekend along with other Republican House members.

The "Main Street Advocacy" event will take place on Amelia Island in Nassau County in the state's northeast, and costs $5,000 a person to attend, RedState.com reported.

The group is an offshoot of the Republican Main Street Partnership and is led by former Ohio Rep. Steve LaTourette, who has said he will help defend center-right congressional members in primary fights with tea party candidates.

"They have decided to systematically go against the center-right Republicans in Primary elections," LaTourette told The Daily Caller.

"Here's the deal — we didn't start this fight, but I'm going to finish it," he said.

According to RedState, the Main Street Partnership has received donations from left-leaning unions, George Soros backed organizations, and a major Democrat donor.
