Clinton will appear as the featured guest for Phil Murphy at a private event in Harrison, N.J., according to an invitation obtained by the AP.


Her showing on behalf of Murphy, which is closed to the press, comes just days after former President Obama stumped for the same candidate at an event in Newark on Thursday.

While individual tickets for the event are listed at $1,000, the invitation urges potential attendees to give the top contribution of $4,300 for the candidate's bid, according to the report.

Comedian Whoopi Goldberg is also reportedly expected to attend. 

Murphy will face Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno in early November as they vie for the spot currently filled by Gov. Chris Christie (R).

Clinton won New Jersey in the 2016 presidential election, as well as Virginia, the only two states with gubernatorial races this year.
