Hillary Clinton is still trying to pay off serious campaign debts from the 2008 election. And so for the fourth time in two years, her husband, former President Bill Clinton, is coming to the rescue.
Per the New York Times' Sean Collins Walsh, the Clinton campaign sent out a message to supporters earlier this week in the former president's name raffling off day in New York with him.
"I love meeting new people, and I so enjoyed when we flew one of Hillary's biggest fans to New York to spend the day with me that I'd like to do it again," Bill Clinton wrote. "If you enter by Tuesday, June 14, 2011, you and a friend will have the chance to fly to New York to spend a day with me."
This is the fourth time Clinton has offered up himself in exchange for paying down his wife's campaign debts. As The Ticket previously reported, the former president promoted a similar contest in December. He did the same in May 2010 and in 2009.
The tactic does seem to be working—albeit slowly. According to the Clinton campaign's most recent financial report with the Federal Election Commission, the committee still owes just over $329,000 to one creditor—former Clinton adviser Mark Penn. A year ago, her debt was listed at $771,000.
