(Newser) – Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will campaign together for the first time next Friday, Obama's camp revealed today, in a step toward unifying a fractured Democratic Party after a bruising primary fight. A day earlier, Obama and Clinton also plan to meet in Washington with some of her top contributors to calm donors who remain frustrated with Obama's campaign. By announcing the events in advance, Team Obama sought to turn attention away from his public financing switch, the AP speculates.
