Trump, Pence to appear at Evansville fundraiser

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence are expected to headline a southern Indiana fundraiser next week where seats cost a minimum of $10,000 – and an upscale package costs 25 times that.

An invitation obtained by The Associated Press says the “casual attire” reception, dinner and photo opportunity will be Monday in the Ohio River city of Evansville.

A source with knowledge of the inner workings of the campaign says both Trump and Pence are expected to attend. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

The gala will be held at the home of GOP fundraiser Steve Chancellor who helped 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney raise money. Tickets range from $10,000 for two, up to $250,000.
