WASHINGTON — GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump hits south suburban Bolingbrook for a Sept. 12 fundraiser targeting major donors from Indiana and the Chicago area.
The organizers are Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar; Illinois Trump Victory Chair Ron Gidwitz; Dan Dumezich, the Trump-Pence Victory Indiana Finance co-chair; and Robert Grand, the Trump-Pence Victory National Finance co-chair.
The contribution tiers on the invite for the lunch at the Bolingbrook Golf Club range from from $1,000 to $250,000.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, the GOP vice presidential nominee, canceled an Aug. 23 fundraiser that was to have been in Chicago’s Loop.
Trump Victory is a joint fundraising committee created by the Trump for President Committee, the Republican National Committee and 11 state GOP parties, not including Illinois or Indiana.
This will be first time Trump has been in Illinois since July 12, when he headlined a fundraiser at his Trump International Hotel and Tower at 401 N. Wabash in Chicago. Trump was in Chicago the Friday before the March 15 Illinois primary, but he never surfaced publicly because he canceled a rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion when protests erupted.
