Donald Trump will make his Minnesota bow later this month as he holds a fundraiser in Minneapolis.

The Star Tribune reports a specific location and time for the event will not be given until donors RSVP, but it will be held somewhere in the city on Aug. 19 and hosted by Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus.

Those attending need to make a minimum donation of $1,000 per person and there is a "maximum tier" for gifts of $100,000 or more per person, with the money going towards the business mogul turned Republican candidate's presidential campaign.

According to the Pioneer Press, media magnate Stanley Hubbard is among those listed as attending the event.

At this stage it's not clear whether Trump will hold any public rallies or events in addition to the fundraiser while visiting the Twin Cities, the newspaper adds.

Trump did not make any stops in Minnesota before the Republican caucus on Super Tuesday, March 1.

Minnesota was one of only three states in the country in which Trump did not finish first or second in the Republican primaries or caucuses (the others being Utah and Wyoming), finishing third behind Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz in March.

Although the state traditionally leans Democrat, Fox News recently reported that Minnesota is one of the 15 states Trump is targeting this campaign.

The New York Times reports that much of Trump's focus however is on the "Rust Belt" states stretching from Wisconsin to Pennsylvania.
