Former President Bill Clinton continues to be a force to be reckoned with in Arkansas politics.
This weekend, Clinton has or will headline fundraisers for Congressional candidates Pat Hays and James Lee Witt in North Little Rock and Hot Springs.
On this campaign swing came word that Clinton will headline a fundraiser in May for Mike Ross. Ross got his start in politics by serving a driver for the former President during Clinton’s comeback run for Governor in 1982.
The Ross/Clinton fundraiser is on Saturday, May 3rd in Little Rock at the Marriott Hotel (formerly the Peabody). The event starts at 6 p.m. and tickets are $250.
With this latest scheduled Ross/Clinton fundraiser, the former President will have headlined separate events for almost all of the major Arkansas Democratic candidates. And it’s only April.
I bet we’ll continue to see a lot more of President Clinton stumping for Arkansas Democrats in 2014.
