Clinton endorsed Delaney in the primary in early March -- one of a series of announcements at that time that helped the Potomac businessman build momentum and ultimately shift from the underdog to the front-runner in the race against state Sen. Rob Garagiola.
"I am a great admirer of President Clinton because during his presidency we had budget surpluses, we created 22 million jobs, and we grew the industries of the future," Delaney said in a statement. "I am truly honored to have President Clinton supporting my campaign by coming to this event."
The fundraiser, first reported by Roll Call, will take place at the home of David Bradley, the chairman and owner of Atlantic Media, which includes The Atlantic magazine.
