It was only a matter of time, and now it is official. The Clinton Family- close personal friends of Terry McAuliffe, are getting actively involved in the race for Governor of Virginia.
NBC12 has confirmed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will host a small, private fundraiser for McAuliffe in her Washington, D.C. home on September 30th.
The news was first reported by Maggie Haberman of Politico.
This will be the first public action by Mrs. Clinton on behalf of McAuliffe. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton took to the campaign trial for McAuliffe during his 2009 primary. President Clinton has appeared at several fundraisers for McAuliffe in this election cycle. He has not appeared at a public rally for McAuliffe yet in 2013.
Mrs. Clinton was unable to campaign on behalf of McAuliffe in 2009, because at that time she was already in place as Secretary of State. She left that position early this year.
At this point there are no public plans for either of the Clintons to appear with McAuliffe on the campaign trial.
