Fmr President Clinton in Seattle next month to fundraise for Inslee

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton will be in Seattle next month for a fundraiser with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee.

Clinton is scheduled to speak at the event at the Washington state Convention Center on Sept. 15. Tickets are $150, and attendees can get their picture taken with the former president for $5,000.

Inslee is in a competitive race with Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna. Earlier this month, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie headlined a rally for McKenna and attended two fundraisers.
