Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to appear at five events in Virginia with Terry McAuliffe Sunday and Monday to boost the gubernatorial candidacy of the Democratic nominee, a long-time Clinton friend, Politico reports
More appearances are set to be announced next week. McAuliffe, former Democratic National Committee Chairman, faces Republican state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli Nov. 5.
Sunday’s rallies will be held in the outer Washington suburbs of Dale City, Richmond, and Hampton. Monday’s events are in Norfolk and Blacksburg.
Clinton’s appearances are designed to boost the turnout of the Democratic base, especially African-Americans and young voters, according to Politico.
McAuliffe was co-chairman of Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential re-election campaign and chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
She made a campaign appearance
for Terry McAuliffe Saturday in Falls Church, her first public political event since retiring as Secretary of State earlier this year.
McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli by an average of 9.6 percentage points in the last five major polls tallied by Real Clear Politics
