Arkansas Senate: Bill Clinton to Stump for Lincoln

Former President Bill Clinton, who “strongly supported Senator Blanche Lincoln in her primary battle this year, is heading back to Arkansas next week to stump for her,” the New York Times reports.

Mr. Clinton, who spent a dozen years as governor of Arkansas, will attend a Sept. 8 event in Little Rock celebrating Ms. Lincoln’s one-year anniversary as chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, according to a release from the Lincoln campaign.

Ms. Lincoln, a Democrat seeking her third term, is in the midst of a difficult campaign against John Boozman, a Republican congressman. She has already narrowly survived a primary challenge from Bill Halter, Arkansas’s lieutenant governor – aided in part by Mr. Clinton, who stumped for Ms. Lincoln in the state and was featured in campaign ads.

The Lincoln campaign’s release notes that she is the first Arkansas senator to head the agriculture panel – far from the first time she has promoted her influence in Washington this election cycle.
