WASHINGTON — Donald Trump and two of his children will make separate fundraising swings throughout Texas in the coming weeks.  

Texas proved in August to be a lucrative stop for the GOP presidential nominee, and the family is returning to the well.  

Based on several invitations obtained by The Texas Tribune, Trump and his two oldest children — Donald Trump, Jr. and Ivanka Trump — will raise money in Texas to fuel the final push for his presidential campaign.  

The elder Donald Trump will headline an event in Houston on Saturday, Sept. 17 to benefit his presidential campaign. Requested donations range from $2,700 per individual to $250,000 per couple.  

Donald Trump, Jr. is also fundraising in the state, headlining a fundraiser in Midland on Sept. 12 — where requested donations range from $1,000 to $25,000 — and one in Longview on Sept. 13, where requested donations range from $1,000 to $100,000. He also has a fundraiser in San Antonio that day, with donations in the $1,000 to $25,000 range. 

Ivanka Trump will headline a Dallas luncheon fundraiser on Sept. 21, with requested donations ranging from $2,700 to $100,000  

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Ray Washburne, a prominent Dallas GOP bundler, are listed on all three invitations as hosts.  

Donald Trump previously raised money in the state in a late-August swing. He brought in more than $2 million, according to two sources close to the Trump campaign.  

But it was not without drama: Trump praised former Texas Gov. Rick Perry as a would-be primary challenger to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018. Perry subsequently shot down the notion, citing an interest in executive-style roles. Perry will also be appearing on Dancing with the Stars this fall.
