George W. Bush is scheduled to headline a fundraising in Houston for his younger brother’s presidential campaign, the Houston Chronicle reported on Monday.

The event is being held in Houston on Wednesday, according to an invite obtained by the the newspaper.

The cost to attend ranges from $10,000 to $2,700.

The fundraiser comes less than a week after Jeb, who served as governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007, defended his brother’s White House record during the second GOP presidential debate, saying: “As it relates to my brother, there is one thing I know for sure, he kept us safe.”

George W. Bush remains a divisive figure in the Republican ranks.

A CNN/ORC national poll released this week showed Jeb Bush running in fifth place, behind real estate mogul Donald J. Trump, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Sen. Marco Rubio, a fellow Floridian.
