Arkansas Democrats calling, again, on Bill Clinton
The Associated Press
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Arkansas Democrats are again enlisting their favorite political son as they try to fend off a Republican takeover of the state's top offices in November.
Democrats announced Tuesday that former President Bill Clinton will headline rallies this weekend in several Arkansas cities. Most of his stops will be in the 4th District, where one of his former Cabinet officials is running for Congress.
The visits come only a week after the former Arkansas governor led rallies in central and northern Arkansas. At those events, Clinton urged voters to not use the November election as a protest vote against President Barack Obama. Early voting begins Monday.
Clinton will visit Hot Springs on Friday; Hope, where he was born, on Saturday; and North Little Rock, Pine Bluff and Forrest City on Sunday.
