According to a report from Politico, former president Donald Trump is wading into the race in Arizona to see who will be the GOP nominee for the Senate seat currently being held by Sen Mark Kelley (D-AZ) who won a two-year term after the death of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).

With multiple candidates vying for the seat -- and Gov Doug Ducey (R-AZ) lurking about as he considers jumping into the fray -- Trump will be joining Arizona Republican Blake Masters at a Mar-a-Lago fundraiser although he has yet to make any endorsement in the race -- but will make himself available for a pricey photoshoot.

As Politico's Natalie Allison wrote, "The fundraiser, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO, is being held Wednesday night at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, a popular venue for candidates seeking to build goodwill with the former president," adding that a person close to the former president stated, "From time to time, the president attends candidate events at his properties prior to an endorsement in the race."

While noting that "It's unclear whether Trump intends to endorse Masters or is still weighing other candidates in the Senate primary," the Politico report adds that attendees going to the private event will be paying $2,900 per person for the meet and greet.

Additionally, "donors or couples raising $25,000 ahead of the event can also have their photo taken with Trump."

Politico also reports that Trump's boosting of Masters comes at the expense of one current candidate, state Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who drew Trump's ire by certifying the election results in the state for Joe Biden which, in turn, led to the much-derided audit of votes in Maricopa Country which only added more votes to the now-president's win total.
