  • HOMEWARD BOUND: Clinton will campaign in Arkansas in October.

The Arkansas Democratic Party announced this morning that former President Bill Clinton will take some time off from grandparenting to headline rallies and campaign for Arkansas Democrats in Conway, Jonesboro, Fayetteville and Rogers on October 6 and 7. Clinton will speak at University of Central Arkansas, Arkansas State University, the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, and the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Rogers. The events are free and open to the public but tickets are required (see details below). 

Can the Big Dog still move the needle in Arkansas? Hard to say, but he can certainly draw a crowd. 

Press release from the Democratic Party and schedule of events after the jump: 

President Clinton to Campaign for Arkansas Victory 2014
President Clinton will headline rallies in Conway, Jonesboro, Fayetteville and Rogers

Little Rock – President Bill Clinton will headline rallies and campaign for Arkansas Victory 2014 in Conway, Jonesboro, Fayetteville and Rogers on October 6th and 7th. President Clinton will speak at the University of Central Arkansas, Arkansas State University, the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, and the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Rogers to rally students, local communities and lay out the clear case for why there is so much at stake for Arkansans in November’s election. Governor Mike Beebe will also be on hand at the Arkansas State University event.

Arkansas Victory 2014 is the largest grassroots campaign in Arkansas history. Thousands of Arkansans from across the state are going door-to-door, making phone calls and talking with their neighbors about the clear choice this November. Arkansas Victory 2014 has already registered thousands of voters, knocked on thousands of doors and made thousands of phone calls. These grassroots efforts will continue through Election Day.

“There is no one better than Bill Clinton at making the case to Arkansans about what’s at stake for the middle class in this election,” said Democratic Party of Arkansas Chair Vincent Insalaco. “President Clinton has always been able to connect with Arkansans on a personal level and that connection makes him the best person to lay out why Arkansans need to get involved and not let out-of-state billionaires buy this election.”

Tickets will be required to attend the events. All events are free and open to the public. All events will have designated ticket pick up locations. Shuttles will be available to the event from off-site parking locations.

    The federal criminal information released as part of former lobbyist Rusty Cranford's June 7 guilty plea on bribery charges describes a Person 9 who worked for the nonprofit healthcare provider Preferred Family Healthcare and was associated with Cranford. The description of Person 9 appears to match Robin Raveendran, the former PFH executive — and former longtime staffer at the state's Department of Human Services — who was arrested Thursday in a separate case, charged in Independence County with two felony counts of Medicaid fraud after an investigation by the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
