Trump to attend Hawley fundraiser on July 24

  

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – President Donald Trump will be heading to Missouri in the coming weeks, but unlike his some of his past visits where he discussed tax reform, this time, he’ll be showing up to support a fellow Republican.

Trump is scheduled to attend a Kansas City luncheon honoring Attorney General Josh Hawley, the assumed frontrunner in the race to unseat Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill.

“The President is coming to Missouri to stand with us in defeating Claire McCaskill. McCaskill has worked, at every turn, against President Trump’s agenda,” the invitation from Hawley reads. “She has failed to secure the border. She voted against a highly qualified and good man in Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. She’s voted to burden our family farms and businesses with outrageous regulations. And she voted against the tax cuts that have put money back in the pockets of working Missourians. Time and again, McCaskill sides with liberal elites like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. It is time for that to change — but we need your help!”

The event will be held on Tuesday, July 24, but the time and location are being withheld until RSVPs to the event are submitted.

The cost to attend the reception is $1,000 per person, with the following contribution level packages available:

ROUNDTABLE
$25,000 per couple (written or raised)
One photo with President Trump
Two attendees for luncheon reception

VIP PHOTO
$10,000 per couple (written or raised)
One photo with President Trump
Two attendees for luncheon reception

LUNCHEON RECEPTION
$2,000 per couple
$1,000 per person

The money will go to the Hawley Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee for Hawley’s campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Trump previously hosted a fundraiser for Hawley on March 14 in St. Louis, which reportedly pulled in roughly $180,000 for Hawley’s campaign.
