Scranton, Pennsylvania — Former President Bill Clinton is in eastern Pennsylvania to raise money and campaign for Democratic candidates in the fall elections.
Clinton is scheduled to start in Scranton on Tuesday where he'll headline a rally for U.S. Senate candidate Joe Sestak.
Sestak, a two-term congressman from a Philadelphia suburb, is expected to miss the event. He is in Washington to vote on a bill extending recession-related aid to states and public schools.
With President Barack Obama's approval rating sagging in polls in Pennsylvania, Clinton is perhaps the biggest Democratic Party name in a state his wife handily won in the 2008 presidential primary.
While in the Navy, Sestak served in the Clinton White House as director for defense policy on the National Security Council.
