Bill Clinton, former Gov. Charlie Crist to attend fundraiser for Sen. Bill Nelson

Former President Bill Clinton and former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist will attend an upcoming fundraiser for Sen. Bill Nelson's (D-Fla.) reelection campaign.

Crist, who lost a Senate race to now-Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Wednesday that he plans to attend the fundraiser for Nelson, according to The Associated Press.

The fundraiser is at the home of John Morgan, a trial attorney who works at the same firm as Crist.

Crist formerly was a Republican but during his unsuccessful Senate bid switched to Independent.

A recent Florida Decides poll found likely challenger Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) trailing Nelson, 47 to 42 percent.
