Bush, Hillary Clinton to help raise money in Virginia race

Former President George W. Bush and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton are raising money for their preferred candidates in the closely watched Virginia governor's race.

Clinton will be the featured guest at a fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam in New York on Oct. 4, while Bush is slated to headline a fundraiser for Republican Ed Gillespie on Oct. 16 in Alexandria.

Gillespie was a senior White House adviser during Bush's presidency. Bush has given $50,000 to Gillespie's campaign and political action committee.

Northam is facing Gillespie in one of only two off-year gubernatorial contests in November. The swing state contest is viewed as a possible early referendum on President Donald Trump's first year in office and a preview of the 2018 midterm elections.


I agree. I wish all politicians had to work within a $500 budget to get out their vision (THEIR vision, not a party vision)

if your mind is strong and you know yourself, no outsider will sway your decision.

it is the lazy non-thinkers who thrive on the comfort of endorsements.  This is as true in politics as it is in merchandising.

How I wish both of them would mind their own business and let us Virginians select our leaders. We don’t need them here.
