    Hillary Clinton will headline three fundraising events for the Democratic National Committee ahead of the midterm elections in November, NBC News reported.

    The "intimate dinners with discussion" featuring the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee will be held in San Francisco, Chicago and New York. A Democratic source close to Clinton said she's also planning fundraisers for some women running in key congressional races.

    Republican officials welcome her involvement, hoping to tie her to Democrats running in places that lean Republican — a process that's already underway in competitive districts, according to an NBC review of midterm advertisements.

    Clinton is aware of that tactic, according to spokesman Nick Merrill. He said, "You pay attention to those you’re threatened by. If they didn't think she was still a force in the party, then they wouldn't continue to treat her like the president."
