Pres. Clinton campaigns for McAuliffe in Richmond Sunday

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Former President Bill Clinton will be in Richmond Sunday to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

The pair will focus on jobs in the stop, as part of a statewide tour stretching into Monday. The Richmond stop will be held at 4:45 p.m. Sunday at Community High School on Brookland Park Boulevard.

Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday at the Democratic Party of Virginia Office at 17th and Franklin streets. The campaign notes that tickets are required but do not guarantee admission.

McAuliffe is a long-time friend and associate of the Clinton family, raising millions of dollars for Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's runs for president. Both Clintons have already hosted fundraisers on behalf of McAuliffe in the 2013 election. Mrs. Clinton was the headliner at a public event for McAuliffe on Saturday.

President Clinton previously stumped for McAuliffe in his failed 2009 bid for the Democratic nomination for Governor.

The Richmond stop will be preceded with a stop in Dale City and followed by a stop in Hampton.

On Monday, the tour continues in Norfolk and Blacksburg, with more stops expected to be announced.
