“President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has canceled a series of fundraisers it had planned to hold in Texas this fall in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, according to three Republicans familiar with the decision.
“Trump had been scheduled to host a Dallas fundraising dinner in late September, while Vice President Mike Pence had been slated to headline a dinner in San Antonio followed by a lunch in Houston, both to take place in early October. All three events, which had been part of a national Trump reelection campaign fundraising swing, have been removed from the schedule as the Lone Star State recovers from the storm.
“The events are to benefit Trump Victory, a joint Trump reelection-Republican National Committee campaign account. They come as the president has begun to take steps to prepare for a 2020 campaign.”
