Bill Clinton to campaign for Murphy in Waterbury

Posted: Updated:
WATERBURY, CT (AP) -

Former President Bill Clinton is coming to Waterbury this weekend to campaign on behalf of Chris Murphy, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.
    
Clinton will be appearing at a public event on Sunday to support Murphy in the race to succeed the retiring independent U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman.
    
He will be the latest of the high-profile surrogates that Murphy and his Republican opponent Linda McMahon are calling in for an edge in the tight race. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie campaigned on behalf of McMahon on Monday in Stamford, Waterbury and Glastonbury.
    
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, headlining events to help Democratic candidates.
