GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s campaign is planning a meeting next week with members of Congress who have endorsed the real-estate mogul on Capitol Hill, according to ABC News.

The meeting is slated to be the first of a series of meetings that Trump will hold to expand his campaign operation in Washington, D.C., ABC reports.

“The purpose of the meetings, which are still in the planning stages, will be for the campaign to begin to listen and learn about concerns members of Congress have, along with discussion of strategy to court uncommitted Republican lawmakers, as the New York businessman works to lock up the GOP nomination ahead of the convention this summer,” ABC News reports.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) will reportedly lead the meetings. Ed Brookover, who is Trump’s liaison to Congress and the Republican National Committee, “is heading up the meetings,” according to ABC News.

Trump is also expected to hire an experienced Capitol Hill staffer in his new Washington, D.C. office to also serve as a liaison to Congress. ABC News reports that the office will be located in Alexandria, Va., with roughly eight full-time employees.
