Hillary Clinton plans to campaign in Miami and fundraise in Miami Beach on Tuesday, her campaign said Friday.

No details about her public event have been released.

Before traveling to Miami, Clinton plans to campaign around Tampa and Orlando on Monday as part of her ongoing “jobs tour,” which has highlighted her economic plan. Her running mate, Tim Kaine, raised money and dropped into a Fort Lauderdale soul-food restaurant this week.

Tuesday evening, Clinton will attend a fundraising event at the Sunset Island home of Bruce Carter, according to an invitation obtained by the Miami Herald. James Ansin of Sunbeam Television, which owns local FOX affiliate WSVN, will co-host. The invitation asks for a minimum contribution of $2,700. Donors who contribute $10,000 or raise $27,000 can also attend a separate reception with Clinton.

Later, Clinton will head to a $50,000-a-plate dinner co-hosted by two couples: businessman and former Ambassador Paul Cejas and his wife, Trudy, and Big Sugar’s Alfy Fanjul and his wife, Raysa. To become a dinner “host,” donors are asked to contribute $100,000 each.

A presidential candidate or running mate has been in South Florida every week since the presidential conventions. Florida is the nation’s most populous swing state.
