Bill Clinton to appear in New Haven for fundraiser

NEW HAVEN -- Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to headline a rally in New Haven to raise money for Democrats running in elections across the country.

Clinton is set to appear at the event at the Omni New Haven Hotel on Tuesday. He'll be joined by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, who are seeking re-election in November.

U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy also are scheduled to be on hand for the event, which begins at 11:30 a.m.

Democratic supporters received an email last week saying attendees can buy tickets online for $50 apiece. The ticket order form says money raised at the event will be used "in connection with federal elections."
