Hillary Rodham Clinton has announced a short visit to Minnesota later this month. It will be her first time to come to the state since announcing her 2016 campaign for the White House.

The Associated Press reports the Democratic frontrunner will attend a June 22nd fundraiser for her “50 state campaign.”

The event will be hosted by Lou and Carol Frillman at the home of Ellen Goldberg Luger. Lou Frillman is president of real estate advising company Marquette Advisors.

Luger, who retired in December from a long career as vice president of global philanthropy and volunteerism for the General Mills Foundation, is married to Andy Luger, Minnesota's U. S. Attorney.

MPR News says Minnesotans who want to meet the former first lady and Secretary of State will have to buy an expensive ticket. The price of admission to the event is $2,700, which is the maximum amount that an individual can give to a presidential candidate before there’s a nominee.

Democratic candidate Senator Bernie Sanders made a public appearance in Minneapolis last Sunday that drew a crowd estimated at 2,000. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee are also competing for the Democratic nomination.
