Hillary Clinton to come to NJ to campaign for Murphy

Posted: Updated:
HARRISON -

Hillary Clinton will campaign for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy days after former President Barack Obama also campaigned for him.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of an invitation to the Sunday event in Harrison. Comedian Whoopi Goldberg will also be there.

Individual tickets for the event featuring the 2016 presidential nominee are listed at $1,000, but the invitation asks potential guests to consider giving the top contribution, $4,300.

The event will not be open to the press, a condition Republican candidate Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno’s campaign had issue with.

"We've called on Phil Murphy to release a full transcript of Hillary Clinton's speech given behind closed doors to high dollar donors. What's he hiding?” a spokesman for the Guadagno campaign said in a statement.

Murphy has also held campaign events with former Vice President Joe Biden. Guadagno has not held any campaign events with top GOP members.

Election Day will be Tuesday, Nov. 7.
