AUSTIN (KXAN) — Presidential democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton was in Austin fundraising on Friday.

Clinton attended the event at The W Hotel, hosted by Mayor Steve Adler and Diane Land. Musical performances include Ben Kweller, Kelly Willis, and Bruce Robinson.

“I hope you’ll join me, Diane, and our family in support of Hillary as she works to earn every vote, every delegate in every state for the primary campaign and beyond,” said Mayor Adler.

Tickets are either $2,700 for premium viewing or $1,000 for preferred viewing. The fundraiser is from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
