Fundraisers Seek Bigger Role for Bill Clinton on Trail: Hill

Some Democratic fundraisers want Hillary Clinton to make former President Bill Clinton a larger part of her presidential campaign, especially in regards to raising money, the Hill reports, citing unidentified contributors.

  • Donors are disappointed by dearth of face time, communication from Clinton on campaign trail
  • NOTE: Bill Clinton attended his first two big-dollar events in Chicago last week; campaign says he plans to attend more fundraisers
  • Billionaire J.B. Pritzker, a venture capitalist who hosted the Chicago event last week, says in interview he isn’t aware of angst among donors; says doesn’t view it as “hindrance” to campaign that the former president “hasn’t been out there”
