STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to stop in Connecticut Monday to campaign and raise money for Democrat Richard Blumenthal's U.S. Senate bid.
Blumenthal campaign spokeswoman Maura Downes said the fundraiser will be held at the Palace Theatre in Stamford, and the time and other information will be disclosed later Thursday.
An invitation posted on the website of ActBlue.com, a Democrats' fundraising group, says attendees can donate $1,000 to $10,000, with the higher amount including a photo with the first lady. It says guests should arrive by 9:45 a.m.
A new Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows Blumenthal's lead in the contentious race against Republican Linda McMahon has grown to 11 percentage points. The sampling margin of error was plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.Tags:
