Bill Clinton to robocall for Hillary Clinton in Arkansas

Word comes tonight that Bill Clinton will be making the rounds across Arkansas on behalf of his wife, Hillary. Her campaign is starting a recorded message campaign tonight to encourage early voting and primary day voting for Hillary Clinton. The former Arkansas governor and two-term President from the Natural State’s voice may wind up on your phone line, depending on your party affiliation.

In the recording, President Clinton says, “We Americans have a right to have a say in our democracy, because of the sacrifice of so many others in the past. And right now we’ve got a chance to restore broad-based prosperity, to get a lot of good new jobs and rising wages. We’ve got so many other things we can do but we have to make your voice heard, no matter what.” The last day to vote early in Arkansas is Monday, Feb. 29.

Hillary Clinton is dominating the polls in the South over rival Bernie Sanders and Arkansas is no exception — the latest polling showed her up by 25 points. 

UPDATE
: I changed the headline to avoid any confusion. No trip planned that I know of — just robocalls.
