NEW YORK Few would dare question the influence of Jon Bon Jovi. The New Jersey born singer has a history of drawing a crowd. Now he's using that clout to help relieve what's left of Hillary Rodham Clinton's $13.1 million presidential campaign debt.
The Associated Press reported that Bon Jovi plans to take the stage at New York's Town Hall January 15 for “a final evening in support of Hillary Clinton for President Debt Relief.” The tickets, priced between $75 and $1,000, will go toward Clinton's remaining $6.3 million in personal loans. Time, after all, is running out for the New York senator to solicit contributions. Once she is confirmed as secretary of state in President-elect Barack Obama's administration, ethics rules prohibit her from this sort of fund-raising.
