Hillary Clinton hosting fundraiser for Va. candidate McAuliffe
(CNN) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will host a fundraiser next month for longtime family friend and Democratic candidate for Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, a source familiar with the event confirmed to CNN Friday.
The event is scheduled to be held at Clinton’s home in Washington, said the source, who spoke anonymously since the fundraiser is considered a private event.
Former President Bill Clinton has headlined fundraisers for McAuliffe in his bid against Virginia’s Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
The Sept. 30 fundraiser will mark Clinton’s first political event since stepping down as the nation’s top diplomat in February.
She’s appeared at events championing women and children, as well assumed a schedule of paid speaking engagements.
Politico first reported the fundraiser.
