HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - Hillary Clinton has joined New Jersey Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy at a campaign fundraiser days after former President Barack Obama campaigned for him.

Clinton attended the fundraiser on Sunday night in Harrison.

Individual tickets for the event featuring the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee were listed at $1,000, but the invitation asks potential guests to consider giving the top contribution, $4,300.

Obama appeared at what was billed as a canvass kickoff for Murphy in Newark on Thursday.

Unlike the event with Obama, the Clinton appearance was not open to the media.

Murphy faces Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (gwah-DAH’-noh) in the Nov. 7 contest to succeed term-limited GOP Gov. Chris Christie.
