RYE BROOK - Former President Bill Clinton lent his support to the Democratic candidate for county executive at a pricey fundraiser Monday night.

Hundreds came out to the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook to back New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson in his quest to become the county's newest executive. Bramson is taking on incumbent Rob Astorino.

No members of the media were allowed into the event, but Bramson expressed beforehand his gratitude on having Clinton's voice in his camp. "We're honored to have the support of someone as widely admired as President Clinton," he says.

Tickets for the fundraiser started at $100, but neither Bramson nor his campaign officials could confirm the maximum ticket price.
