Republican Representatives Matt Gaetz of Florida and Lauren Boebert of Colorado will be at former President Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago resort on Saturday night for a fundraising dinner to support Utah Senator Mike Lee’s 2022 reelection campaign.
The VIP event, which costs $10,600 per couple, started at 7:00 p.m. local time at the Palm Beach resort in Florida, according to an invitation shared by a Politico reporter. Gaetz and Boebert are listed as “special guests” and all funds will go toward the “Mike Lee Victory Fund.”
Despite leaving the White House on January 20, Trump said after the conclusion of his impeachment trial that he will still play a role in U.S. politics. “Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun,” the former president said in a statement following his Senate acquittal. “In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged last Saturday that he could be on a collision course with Trump as he seeks to regain a majority in the upper chamber. Amid reports and speculation of Trump’s plan to fill open GOP seats in the 2022 elections with MAGA-approved candidates, McConnell told Politico that he would not hesitate to intervene if the former president pushes for Republicans that will endanger his chances of recapturing control of the Senate.
