Former President Bill Clinton spoke at a fundraiser Saturday for Jay Inslee, helping the gubernatorial candidate raise money for his hotly contested race.
In front of a crowd of more than 3,000 at the Washington state convention center, Clinton backed Democratic-candidate Inslee's job initiative proposals, including his emphasis on clean energy and biotech jobs.
"You don't have to see him about it after the election," Clinton said. "He's already told you, right now, where he stands on education, on the budget, on the things that will change your children's lives."
Tickets for the fundraiser started at $150. Attendees could get their picture taken with the former President for $5,000.
Last month, Inslee raised $1.2 million in cash contributions. Republican candidate Rob McKenna raised $1 million.
