Washington (CNN) – An effort to pay off Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign debt gives two lucky winners the chance to spend a day in the Big Apple with the current secretary of state's husband, former President Bill Clinton.
By contributing as little as $10 online, people are entered to win a trip for two to New York for a day of adventure with the 42nd president. This will be the second time Bill Clinton has raffled off his time to help pay down his wife's 2008 obligations. He made a similar jaunt last year when the debt total was at $700,000.
"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," Mr. Clinton wrote this week in an e-mail to millions of Hillary supporters. "You and a friend will have the chance to fly to New York to spend a day with me."
As of April, the current secretary of state's campaign organization, Hillary for President, owed almost $330,000, according to the most recent Federal Election Commission filing.
According to the Federal Election Commission, the campaign is in debt to political polling and strategic consulting firm Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates. Funds collected will be dispersed to the company, whose president Mark Penn was Hillary's chief campaign strategist through her Senate and presidential races and an adviser during Clinton's administration.
The deadline for donations in the competition is Tuesday, June 14th.
