FORT WORTH - It looks like local Democrats won't have the welcome mat out for Donald Trump on Tuesday.  He'll be at the City Club in Fort Worth to raise some cash. Tarrant County Democratic Party chairman Deborah Peoples says, "We're here today to tell Donald Trump that his brand of decisive politics don't work in Tarrant County, Texas."

Well, money does work in Cowtown. Reports say the closed door event has some pretty pricey tickets; $2,700 for lunch, and up to $250,000 for a private meeting!  "He's having a fundraiser to try to take money away from the hard-working men and women of Tarrant County," said Peoples.

Well, that's one way of looking at it, but Trump is lagging behind Hillary Clinton when it comes to fundraising.  Meanwhile, the Tarrant County Republicans are welcoming The Donald with open arms. Tim O'Hare, Tarrant County Republican Chair says, "If I were the Democrat party, I would also tend to turn the focus on to the other person's candidate, because their candidate happens to be the most dishonest candidate in the history of American politics."

Trump isn't even in Texas yet and the political trash talking has already begun a day before the lunch. Who finds  all this appetizing?
