Tallahassee may be a lucrative stop for the Clintons. The campaigns biggest surrogate, former President Bill Clinton spoke to Democrats at the home of Florida Party chairwoman Allison Tant.

The fundraiser was closed to reporters and attendees were instructed not to record. Prices ranged from $500 per person to $2,700. That's the maximum campaign donation amount.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the event drew about 200 people including outgoing Tallahassee Representative Alan Williams and former representative Loranne Ausley, who is trying to get her old seat back. Mayor Andrew Gillum was also on-hand, he’s campaigned for Hilary Clinton in other states.

It’s the third time this year a Clinton has come to Tallahassee. The former President addressed a crowd at Florida A&M University in March. Chelsea Clinton held court with a group of supporters that same month.
