Hillary Clinton scheduled to visit Minnesota for campaign fundraiser


Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to make a brief appearance in Minnesota Monday, but is not expected to speak to the public.

Earlier this month, the Associated Press reported the front-runner for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination will hold a fundraiser for her “50 state campaign.”

The price of admission to the event is $2,700, the maximum an individual can donate to a presidential candidate before a nominee is selected.

The fundraiser will be held at the Minneapolis home of Ellen Goldberg Luger, the former head of the General Mills Foundation and the wife of Andy Luger, U.S. Attorney for Minnesota.

MPR News added the hosts for the fundraiser will be Lou and Carol Frillman; Lou Frillman is president of real estate advising company Marquette Advisors. The Seattle Post Intelligencer said the Frillmans are “bundlers” in the $100-200,000 range. Bundlers are identified as those who gave to President Obama’s reelection campaign and also collected donations from friends.

Some Minnesota Republicans are using the visit as a chance to criticize Clinton.

Earlier this month, Politico reported Clinton has an aggressive fundraising schedule, with the campaign stating it aims to gather $100 million by the end of the year.

Over the weekend, Clinton addressed the U.S. Conference of Mayors at their meeting in San Francisco. The New York Times reports her comments, made days after the church shooting in South Carolina, represented "her boldest remarks yet on race and gun violence, topics that have quickly become some of the most prominent and divisive in the presidential campaign."
