President Donald Trump will host a major fundraiser for Nevada Republicans, including Sen. Dean Heller, the day after his scheduled Thursday rally in Las Vegas.
An invitation to the fundraiser obtained by The Nevada Independent states that the event will benefit Heller, Republican congressional candidate Danny Tarkanian, the National Republican Senatorial Committee and National Republican Congressional Committee. Contributions will go to a recently established joint fundraising committee called “Win Nevada,” a type of fundraising organization created by multiple campaigns or organizations that is allowed to accept unlimited donations.
A spokesman for the NRCC declined to say where the fundraiser would be held.
The Friday fundraiser costs $15,000 per couple for a “VIP Photograph,” or $50,000 per couple for a photograph and participation in a “roundtable.” It’s the same requested contributions levels listed for a fundraiser Trump held for Heller back in June, which netted the Republican senator and others nearly half a million dollars.
The fundraiser is also a boost to Tarkanian, whose campaign said in an email to supporters on Tuesday that he will speak and appear on stage during the president’s Thursday campaign rally — the president’s fourth visit to Nevada since being elected in 2016.
