On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton is attending a campaign fundraiser hosted by Justin Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel. The next day, she'll be attending another fundraiser, this time hosted by Apple CEO Tim Cook.
While Clinton certainly has more fundraising events and bigger celebrities, Donald Trump is trying to make up for it by simply asking for more money at each event. In fact, Trump's campaign expects seven digits in contributions from each fundraising event it holds.
"We target to raise at least a million dollars per event," said Steven Mnuchin, national finance chairman for the Trump campaign. "Clinton does a lot of smaller events — we don't do that."
The campaign does that by holding far fewer fundraising events and asking for bigger donations.
Tickets for Clinton's event Tuesday, for example, top out at $33,400 per guest, according to news reports. It was supposed to be hosted by Leonardo DiCaprio, but he got held up due to a change in his work schedule, and Timberlake stepped in. At the same time, Trump will be in Austin, Texas, at a reception with tickets topping $100,000 per couple.
