(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton will headline a fundraiser for his wife’s Senate successor in New York City next month, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced Monday.
“Both Secretary of State Clinton and President Clinton embody the type of leadership I hope to bring to the State of New York,” said Gillibrand, in a message to supporters. “[A]nd President Clinton's willingness to show his early support for my candidacy could not mean more to me.”
Rep. Carolyn McCarthy of Long Island has been mentioned as a possible challenger to Gillibrand in a 2010 Democratic primary race. Rep. Peter King, a Republican from Nassau County, may seek to represent the GOP in the general election contest.
Promises need substance, to back it up... Where are they!!!
Sure it's not a fun raiser? He probably thinks she's hot.

HELL JUST TAKE OUT OF OBAMA'S LEFT OVER TILL. OR OUT OF THIS STIMULUS , HE IS RAKEING IN FOR ACORN , YOU KNOW IT IS THERE FOR THE TAKING . I AM SURE YOU HAVE PLENTY OF GREEN TO GET YOU HANDS ON . AN MORE.
YOU MAY ALSO ASK PELOSI TO STAY WITH YOU (BILLY BOY ) WHILE HILLARY ON A FLYING SPREE. . JUST ONE WEEKED A MONTH , THAT IS $120,000 SAVING FOR THE TAX PAYERS. MAYBE YOU CAN FIND AWAY TO SHIFT THAT INTO YOUR POT. TELL YOU NOW , DONT TELL HER TO GET A SMALLER PLANE, FOR THEY ARE TO CRAMPED AN NOT HER STYLE.
If I were running for any political position I would sure like the Clinton's on my team. You can bash them all you want, but they
have both devoted years to help this country and Bill Clinton is one of the most beloved Presidents of all times.
By the end of the night Slick Willy will probaly have his hands down her pants.
I'm shocked that the clintons would do this they should back McCarthy
I don't like this woman, so who cares?
GUYS I LIKE BILL.
I WOULD TAKE HIM IN A NEW YORK MINUTE OVER THIS CLOWN.
Bill with all the crap internationally and the inability to prosecute anyone on the USS COLE ACT (although Barack dropped those charges now – great american that barack) otherwise he did an okay job. The Congress hamstrung him on spending so he kept it tight.
Plus I have to say that man can bring it when it comes to young girls. He probably held off for the last 4 years while Hillary was running for offics so he is ready to go now. That is the kind of party you go to and just bring a case of beer and a case of condoms.
If anyone gets a listing of where and exactly when this thing is please post it.
I am going to go out there and hit on naive democrat girls. Should be easy work... IT WILL BE CHRISTMAS IN MARCH.
A picture of two powerful women having a good conversation.
That is the cue for the Obama-supporter women-haters to start spewing....
Then the RNC sexist folks will pick up where they left off....
Haters – go home.
@ MATTHEW, DETROIT.......... WHY SUCH VILE COMMENTS?
The far-right continues to spew the same ....hate......lies.........fear and division that cost them the election!
What's REALLY DISTURBING is that you, people, claim to be Christian!
This woman is not a democrat she is a damm republican wakeup newyork
OK I can't help it: will they play "Devil With A Blue Dress On" when he takes the stage?
It must be straight jacket night on the Ticker!
If Bill is so great a campaigner and most beloved, why is Hillary Secretary of State and not President.
Bill is a con-artist, albeit much better than Obama.
NRA Member Senator Kirsten Gillibrand........my favorite democrat......except for Joe Lieberman of course. :-)
@ no corporate politics
Put the pipe down and back away from the keyboard...
Welcome to the rich wives club. Rudi Guliani should contest.
I use to like Bill Clinton but now he is using all this for money. Don’t trust any man that takes credit for another man’s work. During the campaign, Bill & Hillary were the people telling us that things will get worse, trying to scare us like the GOP did, talking about 3:00am calls & all that shit, while Pres. Obama was ‘spreading’ hope & optimism. Now Bill said, “Obama shouldn’t scared the public, he should watch what he says, he should be more optimistic”. Hello Bill!! What do you think that he has been doing for 2yrs? Where have you been? Why do you think that he is still visiting different cities? The man won on hope & optimism, so why are you trying to take credit. Be careful not to let the GOP use you to say stupid things. They have been trying to bring this President down before he even starts. They are so desperate that they will use anyone to do it. If they can’t find scandal in this fund raising, they will make one up.
Your time is over Bill, don’t be selfish. Your wife is part of this administration. It is Hillary's time to shine. Just let them do their job peacefully without worrying about your fund raising scandal. This administration is trying so hard to improve ethics accountability. Don’t expect them to make exceptions for you if any scandal comes up. This is not the time for you to be heading any fund raising. Yes, you can be part of it but you don’t have to lead it.
I am sure Bill Clinton will do it fundraising for her – she is pretty cute after all! I will do the same.
It is so sad to see all the inappropriate comments related to this article – it is plain to see that a lot of fools are clearly lacking a good raising.
LOVE ME SOME BILL.
That guy is LEGIT.
HE IS THE KING OF PARTYING LIKE ITS 1999.
