Clinton Starring In Cleveland Fundraiser For Hagan’s Campaign
Bill Clinton will host a fund-raiser in Cleveland for Democratic candidate Tim Hagan. Clinton’s appearance is part of a three-state trip to Ohio, Illinois and Michigan to support Democratic candidates. Clinton will speak at the Hagan event.
Hagan hopes Clinton’s star power can help him raise some campaign funds. Reports filed last week show Governor Bob Taft has $8.4 million on hand. By comparison, Hagan, a former Cuyahoga County Commissioner, has $586,000.
“I’m honored that President Clinton is coming to Ohio to campaign for me and the entire Democratic state ticket,” Hagan says. “The fact President Clinton is coming to Ohio demonstrates that he and the Democratic National Committee believe Ohio is a critical and competitive state this year.”
