Republican Gov. Rick Snyder will head to New York City next month, where former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will host a fundraiser for Snyder’s reelection bid.

The June 5 fundraiser will be held at Bloomberg’s home in New York with contribution levels ranging from $1,000 a head to host committee spots at $6,800 per individual (or, for a couple, $13,600).

Snyder, elected in the Republican wave of 2010 and vulnerable in 2014, is generally leading his challenger, former Rep. Mark Schauer, in early polling.

Bloomberg last month launched a new $50 million gun-control campaign, Everytown for Gun Safety.
