Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine will be in Maryland on Wednesday for a fundraiser hosted by David Trone, the wealthy businessman who ran an expensive yet unsuccessful campaign for Congress this year.
Tickets for the Montgomery County event start at $1,000, according to an invitation obtained by The Sun. To stick around for dinner, though, attendees will have to cough up at least $27,000.
Trone, the co-owner of national liquor retailer Total Wine & More, ran in the closely watched 8th Congressional District Democratic primary this year. He lost to state Sen. Jamie Raskin despite spending an astounding $13.4 million of his own money on the contest.
