Report: Blumenthal to Back Hillary at Westport Event

Invitations have gone out for a Westport fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on June 6 and the National Journal said U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal will use the occasion to become the latest Democratic senator to come out for a potential Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy. Image

Blumenthal will make a “special announcement” at a June 6 fundraiser for the super PAC Ready for Hillary at the Westport home of Ann Sheffer and Bill Scheffler, according to an invitation sent to area Democrats by Martha Aasen, former Westport Democratic Committee town chair.

Harold Ickes, a Bill Clinton White House aide who is now a senior adviser to Ready for Hillary will also give an “important update,” the invitation said. The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m.
Tickets start at $201.60 (a nod to the year 2016) for the “sponsor” level and go up to $1,000 for the “cohost” level.

The National Journal said Blumenthal joins Democratic Sens. Debbie Stabenow, Barbara Boxer and Dick Durbin, who announced their support for Clinton earlier this week, and Sen. Tim Kaine, who threw his support behind Clinton earlier this month. Several other Democratic leaders have urged Clinton to run.
