New Jersey Sen. Bill Bradley and actor-director Robert Redford will be co-hosts at a fund-raising reception and dinner for Utah gubernatorial candidate Ted Wilson.

The event will be held April 28 in Washington to help Wilson oust Republican Gov. Norm Bangerter, said Bradley spokesman Nick Donatiello. The Democratic senator and Redford are longtime friends.Wilson, a former Salt Lake City mayor, is leading Bangerter in the polls. The incumbent is seeking his second term.

Bradley, Redford and Wilson conceived the idea for the event together, Donatiello said. "I think it was just something the three of them agreed to do," he said. Tickets will range from $100 to $500.
