The three candidates — Jay Webber of New Jersey, Ross Spano of Florida and Carol Miller of West Virginia — are all running for seats being vacated by Republican representatives.
Webber, who is running against Democratic opponent Mikie Sherrill in the race to replace retiring Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R) in New Jersey’s 11th congressional district, announced last week that Trump would be holding the fundraiser for him.
Politico reported Monday that the fundraiser will also be for Spano and Miller.
Spano is running against Democratic opponent Kristen Carlson in the race for the seat representing Florida’s 15th district. The seat is currently held by retiring Rep.

Prediction models, such as FiveThirtyEight’s House forecast and the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, favor Democrats to win control of the House in next month’s midterms. To do so, Democrats would need to pick up 23 seats.
