Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez will travel to Mexico next month to hold a series of party fundraisers, according to reports.

Perez will reportedly travel south of the border to hold three fundraising events with American expatriates.

Perez will head up the events in Mexico City on September 28th, according to Bloomberg.

High-end access can cost up to $15,000, the report reveals:

The events range from happy hour drinks with a $25 minimum student entry to a dinner where tickets range from $1,000 to $15,000.

The registration form on the DNC website require that attendees be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enter passport or green card numbers.

It is illegal for foreigners to contribute to American political campaigns.

DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa confirmed that Perez will be holding the events.

According to Breitbart, with approximately 1.5 million American citizens residing in Mexico, per State Department figures, the trio of events could prove lucrative.

The move comes at a time when the DNC is being significantly outraised by the Republican National Committee (RNC). 

For the month of June, Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings show the RNC raised $20.8 millionspent $14.3 million and had $43.5 million in cash on hand.

While its Democrat counterpart only took in $8.5 millionspent $7.5 million and had $9.3 million in cash in the bank.

However, the DNC also had $5.7 million in debt.

Perez has previously courted the support of Democrats living abroad, having delivered a speech in London in April 2018.

Meanwhile, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has also revealed she is back in the game.

HRC is reportedly planning a dinner fundraiser for the DNC where plates can cost up to $50,000.

According to POLITICO Playbook:

“HILLARY CLINTON is hosting a big-dollar fundraiser for the DNC at her D.C. mansion (just around the corner from VP Mike Pence’s house).

"The Oct. 16 event is billed as 'Dinner and conversation at the home of Hillary Rodham Clinton.'

"Tickets are available at $15,000, $35,000 and $50,000 levels.”

It’s not clear if the fundraiser indicates Clinton’s desire to get more involved in the Democratic Party as the 2020 primary season heats up, but the candidates may not want her help.

As of 2018, Clinton’s favorability rating remained at a record low, according to Gallup.
