Attorney General Thurbert Baker is getting some high profile help for his bid to become Georgia’s first black governor.

Former President Bill Clinton will headline a New York fundraiser for Baker in December.

Baker praised Clinton for building a strong economy saying he would do the same in Georgia if elected to replace Governor Sonny Perdue.

Baker is in a four-way race for the Democratic nomination for governor.
