President Trump to headline big ticket GOP fund-raiser
RANCHO MIRAGE – Donald Trump will make his first visit to the Inland Empire as president this week.
The Palm Springs Desert Sun reported that Trump will attend a campaign fundraising event at Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison's Rancho Mirage estate Wednesday. It comes less than two weeks before California's Super Tuesday primary election.
Ellison will host supporters on a golf outing at his Porcupine Creek home. For $100,000, supporters can join a golf outing and have their photo taken with the president. For $250,000, contributors get a photo, golf outing and can participate in a round-table discussion. Both options are for two guests.
The Rancho Mirage fundraiser is part of a larger California sweep that has the president scheduled to appear in Los Angeles, Bakersfield and Beverly Hills. After Rancho Mirage, he'll jet to Phoenix for one of his trademark rallies Wednesday evening.
The contributions will go to "Trump Victory," a joint fundraising committee formed by the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee and state GOP chapters. The large contributions will be distributed to Trump's primary and general election accounts, the RNC, state parties, and also go toward bankrolling the Republican National Convention, according to the invitation.
