Bill Clinton is headlining a fundraiser for Georgia Senate candidate Mike Thurmond (D) Thursday in Atlanta.

Tickets to the evening event at the Sheraton range from $1,000 to $2,400. Thurmond advisers had previously told The Ballot Box that Clinton could be helpful in broadening the Democrat's appeal. He's currently trailing Sen. Johnny Isakson (R) in polls and money raised.

Thurmond's connections with Clinton go way back, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was a supporter of then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's (D-N.Y.) 2008 presidential campaign, and worked with the Clinton White House in the 1990s on welfare reform.

The former president is also set for events in Cleveland and Columbus on Sept. 14 to help Gov. Ted Strickland (D). 

And Clinton will be the headliner at a rally and fundraiser for Ohio Senate candidate Lee Fisher (D) in Cincinnati on Sunday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
