Businessman and reality television star Donald Trump will travel to Hot Springs next month as a keynote speaker for the Republican Party of Arkansas.

The 2016 GOP hopeful will address political leaders and supporters on July 17 at the Reagan-Rockefeller Dinner, the party's biggest fundraising event of the year.

Arkansas GOP Chairman Doyle Webb says he expects Trump to help draw the largest turnout ever for the event.

Trump announced his candidacy last week in New York City. The party announced his visit on Monday.

Democratic hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Arkansas the same weekend to fundraise for the state Democratic Party.
