CINCINNATI -- Mayor John Cranley confirmed that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will visit Cincinnati Monday for a private fundraising event at the mayor's home.

"My wife Dena and I are going to host, and we’re very honored to have the future president in our house," Cranley said.

The logistical details had not yet been worked out Wednesday afternoon, and Cranley called the event "pretty last-minute." The event's website here reveals that the lowest ticket cost is $1,000. Those donating or raising $10,000 can attend a "host reception" with Clinton while people who can donate or raise $33,400 can attend a "chair reception" with Clinton.

Cranley told WCPO that anything is possible in the United States with Clinton becoming the first female Democratic nominee for president.

"I’m very proud to support her and believe when you contrast her message of inclusion and breaking barriers to Trump’s message of calling people out by race, it’s not a close contest," Cranley said.

Cranley initially said a separate, public event would also take place Monday, but Harrell Kirstein from the Clinton campaign said no public events are scheduled that day in Cincinnati.

No campaign stops in or around Cincinnati are listed on the candidate's website; Clinton is scheduled to also stop in Cleveland on Monday.
