Donald Trump's presidential campaign swings through the Valley on Tuesday as he sets to meet with Republicans in Tulare.

No rallies are scheduled at this time. Just a private fundraiser at a home in Tulare. Attendees are paying a minimum of $2,700 per person just to be at the luncheon. But some guests are forking up $25-thousand for a VIP meeting with Trump.

Details on the location and arrival remain confidential for security reasons. But we do know the event is being put on by pistachio grower Corky Anderson.

Congressman Devin Nunes will be in attending the fundraiser. He says this event is expected to be one of the biggest fundraisers in Valley history with Trump expecting to raise as much as $1.5 million.

Sources say the republican presidential nominee is expected to talk about the drought and the ongoing water crisis in California. Fresno County's Republican Party Chairman, Red Vanderhoof, says the fundraiser is a chance for farmers to be heard in a private setting.

"I think that now he's thinking a little more about policy, where as he was trying to win a primary before. So I think, you know, it's a private meeting, so he wants to hear what farmers have to say," said Vanderhoof.

The event is expected to be small and private with only about 300 people in attendance -- unlike his last trip to the Valley in May at Fresno's Selland Arena.

At that event, he spoke to thousands of supporters. But outside is where he was met with demonstrators. Two arrests were made after protests escalated.

Meanwhile Hillary Clinton is expected to be in Pennsylvania and a fundraising event in Massachusetts. Over the weekend she pulled in millions of dollars while fundraising in the Hamptons and Monday in Pensicola, Florida.

Details on Trump's arrival remain confidential but we do know the fundraising event is a luncheon so we know he will be in the area around noon on Tuesday.
