Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's running mate, is returning to Texas next month to raise money for the Democratic presidential nominee.

Kaine, a U.S. senator from Virginia, will attend a fundraiser Sept. 22 in Houston and two more the next day in Austin, according to invitations. Tickets start at $500 for the Houston event and one of the Austin events, while it costs at least $10,000 to get in to the other Austin event.

Hosts for the fundraisers are still being selected. The high-dollar event in Austin is at the home of Bonnie Mills, a member of the board of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. 

Kaine previously visited Texas earlier this month, making a two-day trip to raise money in Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth. In Austin, he also held an event to thank volunteers for Clinton and the Texas Democratic Party. 

Disclosure: Planned Parenthood has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune. A complete list of Tribune donors and sponsors can be viewed here.
