HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton is coming to Connecticut to help Democratic Senate candidate Chris Murphy in the final days of his tight race against Republican Linda McMahon.
A source close to Murphy's campaign told The Associated Press on Friday that Clinton is scheduled to be in the state on Sunday, Oct. 28. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details are not final.
Clinton will appear at a public event. It will not be fundraiser. No further details were immediately made available.
Some Democratic officials had hoped Clinton would make an appearance in Connecticut and help boost voter turnout at the polls. Clinton made a similar appearance in 2010, attending events to help Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and U.S. Rep. Jim Himes.
