Hillary Clinton’s caucus-week plans in Washington state include a high-priced fundraiser at the Medina home of Costco co-founder Jeff Brotman and his wife, philanthropist Susan Brotman.

The former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate will attend what’s being billed as a “Conversation with Hillary” on March 22 at the Brotmans’ lakeside home, according to an event invitation.

Tickets for the fundraiser are going for $2,700 a person and up to $50,000 for hosts who will get a private reception with Clinton.

The Brotmans are major Democratic Party donors and hosted President Obama at a fundraiser in 2012.

Washington’s Democratic caucuses are March 26 and will determine whether the bulk of the state’s 118 delegates go to Clinton or to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, her rival for the Democratic nomination.

Clinton has not yet announced any public events during her visit. The campaign earlier had confirmed the caucus-week visit but not details of the fundraiser.

Her visit is likely to be part of a busy local political week, as Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to headline a March 21 fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Patty Murray’s re-election campaign. He’ll also visit the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Sanders has yet to announce his plans for the Washington caucuses, but campaign aides say they expect him to campaign here.
