NYACK - Former President Bill Clinton is throwing his weight behind the Democratic candidate running for Rockland County executive.

Clinton attended an exclusive fundraiser at the Nyack Seaport for executive hopeful David Fried. Attendees paid anywhere between $250 and $5,000 per person to meet Clinton, who endorsed Fried back in April.

Fried says he has known Clinton for 15 years, and that the once-commander-in-chief has inspired him to no end.

No members of the media were allowed into the event.

Fried says he hopes to raise $150,000 from the fundraiser.

Fried is running against Republican candidate Ed Day.
