When President Trump arrives in Utica on Monday, he'll be greeted by the 22nd District Congresswoman with a long list of local matters to discuss.

"Oh, I have a list of issues I want to bring up with him when I have my chance with him," said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, for whom Trump is hosting a fundraiser in Utica. "Actually, he's a good listener and he really cares about our community so I'm just really excited. I think it's a huge testament to our community that we have the President of the United States who cares enough to come to my hometown and do an event."

Trump is hosting the $1,000-$15,000 per plate fundraiser at a Utica location that neither Tenney's campaign nor the White House have disclosed. It's a move that illustrates Republicans' determination to hold onto the hotly-contested 22nd Congressional District seat.

Those paying the $15,000 will get a roundtable with the president.

"A lot of the people are going to be names you're going to be very familiar with are going to be at the roundtable discussion. A lot of local business leaders, people who are interested in talking to the president about policies we need in place on the federal side to continue to allow their businesses to thrive and grow in upstate New York," said Tenney.

The Congresswoman alluded to a possible second, less-restrictive, all-inclusive presidential visit to central New York, as the hard-fought, high-stakes race for the 22nd Congressional District draws closer.

"We're hoping the President will come back for a rally where everyone can attend," Tenney said.
