WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton will make her first campaign fundraising trip to California in May, holding events in the Democratic stronghold over three days.

Clinton's presidential campaign says in an email to donors Thursday that Clinton plans to attend fundraisers in San Francisco on May 6, Los Angeles on May 7 and Silicon Valley on May 8.

The former secretary of state is appearing at her first fundraisers next week in New York and Washington, D.C.

Advisers have set a modest goal of raising $100 million for the primary campaign and will not initially accept donations for the general election. Clinton has focused on raising money online during the start of her campaign.

Clinton is expected to draw support from Hollywood and California's influential technology sector in the campaign.
