Bubba offers a day with him to those who help pay off his wife’s 2008 campaign debt.

What's a day spent touring New York City with former President Bill Clinton worth? Well for those who donate to help wipe out Hillary Clinton's $770,000 campaign debt from 2008, anything from $10-$2,300 will get you a chance to spend the day with Bubba.

It's the latest bid by Team Hillary to clean up her debt issues stemming from her shocking primary defeat to Barack Obama in 2008. She's had several political celebrities, like her husband and James Carville, help out on the effort that's nearly complete.

Bill Clinton's letter:

Dear Paul

During the 2008 campaign I had the opportunity to meet Hillary's supporters from all over the country. I met so many wonderful people and had so many great conversations.

A few months ago, I had a chance to do that again, when the campaign flew one of Hillary's biggest supporters, who won our previous contest, to New York to visit me. We talked about how Hillary's doing as Secretary of State and the current state of the world, and about the work of my foundation.

I had such a good time that I'd like to do it again. How would you like the chance to come up to New York and spend a day with me?

Hillary's campaign still has a few vestiges of debt that I know she would like to see paid in full. Will you reach out today to help Hillary this one last time? If you enter between now and May 18th, you might join me for a day in New York.

Click here to help pay down the last of our campaign debt, and we might fly you to New York to spend the day with me.

I'm so proud of the work Hillary has done as Secretary of State, traveling the world, restoring the country's alliances, and making America stronger. And as I watch health care reform sweep the country, I can't help but think about how much she has contributed over the years to make the progress we are making possible.

I know you share my pride in all her accomplishments, and I know how much your continued support means to her.

And yes, she still needs your help. That's why we're going to choose one supporter who enters between now and May 18th and fly them and a guest to New York, where they'll spend a day with me.

Contribute $5 or more today for your chance to join me for a day in New York City.

Thank you for the wonderful support you've shown to both me and Hillary over the years. Our lives are richer for knowing you.

Sincerely,

Bill Clinton
