Bill Clinton to fundraise for Kratovil
Former President Bill Clinton will headline a fundraiser for Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil of Maryland on Sunday in D.C.
The event will be held at the Acadiana restaurant, a Kratovil aide confirmed. Tickets are $500 for individuals. PACs are asked to chip in $1,000, according to Roll Call, which broke the news.
Clinton is also to appear at a Baltimore fundraising event for Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley later this month.
Kratovil, a freshman, is in one of the tightest House races in the country. Republican challenger Andy Harris is raising buckets of money and benefitting from lavish ad spending by outside Republican groups.
The race is rated a tossup. A recent independent poll showing Harris holding a three point lead, within the poll's margin of error, and there was a sizable undecided vote.
