The organization said it had created an “Emergency Response Fund to match the piles of cash Trump will rake in” for Republican Karen Handel.
Handel finished second in the April 18 special election to Democrat Jon Ossoff, and the two will face each other in a runoff June 20. The race is being closely watched nationally as a test of how Trump is affecting down-ballot races.
Democrats have sought to parlay anti-Trump sentiment nationally into an upset in a Republican-tilting district previously represented by Tom Price, now Trump’s health and human services secretary.
Trump is traveling to Atlanta on Friday to address a conference of the National Rifle Association and will appear at the fundraiser afterward, according to a copy of the invitation. Tickets start at $2,700 apiece, while hosts are asked to contribute or raise $25,000 per couple.
The Democratic solicitation seeks contributions of $1 “to help elect Jon and Democrats like him.”
