Bill Clinton to host event for super-PAC backing Obama

Former President Bill ClintonBill Clinton100 days to go in volatile race Romney: Trump victory 'very possible' What does Bill think of Hillary's Chris Wallace interview? MORE will host a New York City event with major Democratic donors for Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super-PAC, The Hill has confirmed.

The decision is the latest sign of increased activity on behalf of Obama by the popular former president. He'll also give a prime-time speech at the Democratic National Convention in early September.

The event is not technically a fundraiser, as invitees do not have to commit to donating beforehand, but a briefing for potential donors to the group on the race's state of play.

The group has reserved $30 million in ad time, more than the actual amount they've raised so far this campaign. The event with one of the Democratic Party's most popular figures could help them close that gap.
