Trump campaign lines up nearly two-dozen high-dollar fundraisers

  |   World News

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is set to hold nearly two-dozen high-dollar fundraisers with the Republican National Committee this month, a busy press of events that will help sustain an expanding flow of contributions to his presidential bid. Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee between his campaign and the party, has 21 finance events on the books for August, according to people familiar with the schedule. The whirlwind-pace full calendar, coming during what is typically a relatively sleepy late summer period in the political world, highlights the urgency with which Republicans are trying to keep pace with Hillary Clinton in the money chase. And it shows that there is a continuing appetite among party donors to back the billionaire real estate mogul, despite his stumbles on the campaign trail.
