Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will reportedly be in New Orleans next month for a fundraiser hosted by New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, former U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu and prominent Democratic Party donor Calvin Fayard.
WWL-TV, citing a copy of the event invitation, reports the event will take place at Frances and Calvin Fayard’s home in New Orleans on Jan. 19. Calvin Fayard’s daughter Caroline ran for lieutenant governor in 2010 and has been mentioned as a possible Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate next year.
According to WWL, Clinton supporters will pay at least $1,000 to attend the private fundraiser with Clinton. For $2,700, supporters can get a photo with the candidate.
Clinton held a fundraiser in Baton Rouge in September after acampaign rally at the Louisiana Leadership Institute. Clinton’s chief Democratic rival, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, also has held rallies in Louisiana.
Louisiana voters will head to the polls March 5 to vote in the presidential primaries.
On the Republican side, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio recently held a fundraiser in New Orleans; former President George W. Bush hosted a fundraiser for his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, in New Orleans; Dr. Ben Carson held a fundraiser in New Orleans and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s Louisiana-born wife stumped for him here.
One candidate who hasn’t yet stumped in Louisiana, despite several swings across the South: GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who will hold a rally in Biloxi, Mississippi, on Saturday. The event is free.
