There is a better than 50 percent chance that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in September, a top Fed official told the Fox Business network on Monday.

Bullard, who is not a voting member on the Fed’s policy-setting committee this year, is a policy hawk who previously said the Fed has kept rates at near-zero levels for too long.
