Former President Bill Clinton is starting a three day campaign-swing for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on October 27.
The McAuliffe campaign announced Sunday that Clinton go a three-day campaign tour throughout the state in support of McAuliffe. The former president will appear at multiple campaign events for McCuliffe throughout the state. The McAuliffe campaign said it would announce details and locations for Clinton’s swing soon.
The announcement came a day after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a rare campaign appearance in support of McAuliffe on Saturday. McAuliffe served as a co-chairman of the former secretary of State’s 2008 presidential campaign.
McAuliffe has recently begun to widen his lead in recent polls over Republican opponent Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. A NBC4/NBC News/Marist released Thursday found McAuliffe leading Cuccinelli 43 percent to 38 percent, an increase of three percentage points from a month earlier.
