Bill Clinton to raise money for Jay Inslee in Seattle next month

Gubernatorial hopeful Jay Inslee and former President Bill Clinton will appear together at a luncheon fundraiser next month, the Inslee campaign announced Wednesday.

Clinton, one of the most popular Democrats in the country, is expected to speak at the Sept. 15 event at the Washington State Convention Center.

Tickets will start at $150. Attendees can get a photo with the former president for $5,000.

Inslee served briefly for Clinton as the regional director for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The former president wrote the forward for Inslee’s book, “Apollo’s Fire: Igniting America’s Clean Energy Economy,” which Inslee mentioned in a recent TV campaign ad.

Inslee is locked in a tight race with Republican Rob McKenna, the state attorney general.

McKenna has brought several nationally known Republicans to support his campaign, including  Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
