Former President Bill Clinton will headline a Seattle fundraiser Dec. 3 to bolster his wife’s presidential campaign
Former President Bill Clinton will headline a fundraiser in Seattle next week to bolster the campaign of his wife, Democratic front-runner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The Dec. 3 noon event is scheduled for Capitol Hill’s Century Ballroom, according to copies of the invitation. Tickets range from $500 for the “friend” level, $1,000 for “sponsor” and $2,700 for “champions,” who get a photo with the former president.
No public events have been announced and a Clinton campaign spokesman said the event would be closed to the media.
The former president has started to take a more public role in his wife’s presidential campaign in recent months.
