Clinton, Longtime Friend to Grimes and Her Family, Will Headline Tuesday Fundraiser in Louisville
Former President Bill Clinton will be in Kentucky Tuesday to help raise money for a U.S. Senate candidate.
Clinton will headline a lunchtime fundraiser at a Louisville hotel for Democrat Alison Lundergran Grimes. The cost of admission to the event at the Galt House is a contribution of $100-$5,200.
The Courier-Journal reports those who give one-thousand-dollars will get access to a rope line. Donors at the $2,600 level will also gain entry into a reception featuring Clinton, and $5,200 gets the donor a special commemorative gift.
Grimes and Clinton have a history. Grimes’ father, Jerry Lundergan, is a longtime friend of the former President and was Kentucky chairman Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
During Bill Clinton’s first inaugural festivities, a 14-year-old Alison Lundergan Grimes gave the new first couple of bouquet of red roses at the base of the Lincoln Memorial.
