(CNS) – Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, is expected to be in the Los Angeles area Monday to headline a Republican fundraising event with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield.
The pair are also scheduled to attend a fundraiser in Fresno. Details of the events haven’t been made public, so it was unclear which will be held first.
According to Politico, the events will benefit Protect the House, a fundraising committee founded by McCarthy and Vice President Mike Pence aimed at ensuring the GOP maintains its majority hold on Congress.
A representative for Ivanka Trump confirmed to Politico that she would be attending the events.
“At the request of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Ivanka Trump will be headlining a June 18 Protect the House fundraiser with the Leader in California,” according to the statement to Politico. “Ivanka developed a strong relationship with Leader McCarthy during their efforts to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and its Child Tax Credit provisions. They also worked closely on Seta/Fosta legislation to combat online sex trafficking.”
McCarthy held fundraisers in Malibu and Beverly Hills in late April, headlined by Pence. He is believed to be a top contender to replace the retiring Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, as Speaker of the House.
