The brief Newsom and Clinton itinerary

Mayor Gavin Newsom just can’t wait to hang out with former President Bill Clinton in Los Angeles next week – and while they’re good friends, everyone knows this rendezvous is purely political.

Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign this afternoon released a brief itinerary of their plans for Oct. 5. The plans mark the first time Clinton will publicly appear by the mayor’s side in support of his bid to become governor.

Clinton and Newsom will first visit a new, LEED-certified science and technology facility at Los Angeles City College and will speak to faculty and students about education for future job opportunities in green technology, the campaign release said.

The former president will then attend a fundraiser to benefit Newsom’s campaign, it said.

“Bill Clinton remains one of the most revered public figures among California Democrats,” Newsom said in the statement.
