The fundraiser at an undisclosed location on the Peninsula is expected to net $25,000 per person.

This is Trump's first Bay Area visit since June. That's when his appearance in San Jose was overshadowed by protests that got out of control. His supporters were attacked leaving his rally at the McEnery Convention Center. Police eventually arrested more than a dozen people, but clearly, the Trump campaign is hoping to avoid another clash, likely why it's been keeping the specifics of Monday's fundraising locations under wraps. Trump has raised money in Southern California several times before, but never in the Bay Area.

"We've still got 70 odd days before the election. There's still time, but you need money to do all the things it takes to become more competitive," said Prof. Melissa Michelson, Menlo College.
Michelson says Trump's fundraising trip may be taking precious time away from swing states, but cashing in in the golden state may be exactly what his campaign needs.
In addition to the Peninsula, Trump is expected to hold a fundraiser in Napa Valley.
