It's not just a book tour anymore:

Hillary Clinton will headline a fundraiser for Virginia Democrat Ralph Northam next month as he makes a final push against Republican rival Ed Gillespie.

Northam will hold the fundraiser with Clinton in New York on Oct. 4, as first reported by the Associated Press.

The Northam campaign confirmed the report but declined to comment further.

Northam, who is Virginia’s lieutenant governor, is locked in what polls say is a close contest with Gillespie, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, ahead of the Nov. 7 election.

The Democrat had a significant lead in fundraising as of the last campaign finance disclosure filing. Northam had $5.6 million in cash on hand to Gillespie’s $2.6 million as of Aug. 31, according to filings earlier this month.
