It looks like Indiana Gov. and Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence will be in Boise later this week for a $1,000-a-head fundraiser for the Trump-Pence campaign.

An invitation is making the rounds for an event at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

Though the location is not given, the event is said to be occurring at the Zions Bank building downtown.

The invitation lists co-hosting opportunities available for up to $25,000.

Listed hosts include Layne Bangerter, Trump’s Idaho state campaign director; Gov. Butch Otter, an honorary campaign chair; and Idaho Republican lobbyists and strategists Pat Sullivan, Skip Smyser, and Damond Watkins.

Watkins, a Republican national committeeman, left as VP of corporate affairs for GOP fund-raising big-wig Frank VanderSloot’s Melaleuca company earlier this year to start his own marketing and public affairs company in Pocatello.
