TRENTON — Former President Bill Clinton will come to New Jersey in June to raise money for U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez’s (D-N.J.) campaign for reelection.
“I am honored and excited that President Clinton will be visiting the Garden State in a few weeks,” said Menendez in a statement. “I’m proud of the work we did together in Congress during the Clinton years. We balanced the budget for the first time in a generation, had record surpluses, low unemployment, low inflation and the greatest peacetime economy in over a generation.”
The Menendez campaign announced the June 1 event this afternoon. They have not yet said where it will be held.
Clinton will be the second major national Democrat to raise money for Menendez this year. Last month, Vice President Joseph Biden headlined a fundraiser for the senator at a private Morris Township home.
Menendez, who has served since 2006, is unopposed in the Democratic primary. State Sen. Joseph Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) is his likely challenger in November.
Menendez has $9.5 million in the bank to Kyrillos’s $1.4 million.
