Maryland Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Cox will get a fundraising boost from former President Donald J. Trump. Trump is hosting a fundraiser with Cox at the former president’s Mar-A-Lago Club in Florida on Oct. 17, according to a photo of the invitation obtained by The Baltimore Banner. The Cox campaign did not respond on Thursday to questions from The Baltimore Banner. The invitation states that guests can pay $1,776 to attend a “private cocktail reception” and a picture with Trump and Cox requires a “$25,000 raise.” Maryland law limits campaign donors to giving no more than $6,000 to a candidate in a four-year campaign cycle, indicating it’s possible that some of the money will be kept by Trump instead of funding Cox’s campaign.
