Elton is to appear at a fundraiser in aid of Hillary Clinton's campaign to be elected to the American Senate.

 

According to MSNBC columnist Jeannette Walls, tickets to the event on October 26, 2000, start at $6,000 and only 200 tickets are available.

 

Elton is also said to have written a song for Mrs Clinton, First Lady of the United States and wife of incumbent President Bill Clinton. Hillary is facing tough competition from Republican Rick Lazio in the fight for the right to represent New York in the Senate.

 

Walls quotes a source as saying: "Elton wants to do all he can for Hillary. He completely adores her."

In September, Elton was the star attraction at a fundraiser for Clinton's successor candidate for the White House, Al Gore. The U.S. Presidential and Senate elections take place on November 7, 2000.
