ALBANY, N.Y. -- Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is getting fundraising help from President Barack Obama's former campaign manager as she faces a possible primary challenge from Harold Ford Jr.

The Gillibrand campaign says David Plouffe will be the featured speaker at a Feb. 22 breakfast fundraiser at a New York City law firm.

Plouffe was recently tapped by the president to help keep tabs on 2010 midterm races. His planned appearance at the $250-a-ticket fundraiser is further evidence of White House support as Gillibrand seeks election to the Senate seat she has held for a year.

Ford, a former Tennessee congressman, has been meeting with voters and Democratic leaders across the state as he flirts with a possible primary challenge.
