With the primary election just weeks away, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is taking his campaign outside state lines, with a fundraiser scheduled to be held later this month in California.

The invitation shows the event, slated for January 24, carrying a high price tag: $25,000 for top-tier “Co-Chairs”, which includes four preferred seating tickets to the Orange County reception and dinner honoring Abbott, as well as a signed copy of his book “Broken But Unbowed.”

Golden State supporters of Gov. Abbott on a budget can elect to become a “Co-Host” instead for a modest $5,000. That will get you one ticket to the reception and the dinner. 

The fundraiser comes as Abbott has been criticized for so-far failing to attend a single forum or debate with his opponents in the Republican primary. Instead, Abbott has largely ignored his competition, launching his re-election campaign on Saturday and embarking on a 60-city tour of Texas. 

Early voting in the Republican primary election begins on February 14. Election day is March 1.
