Hillary Clinton Returning To Kentucky This Weekend

By Kentucky Public Radio


Louisville, KY – Senator Hilary Clinton will rally supporters for Bruce Lunsford on
Saturday at noon at the Pikeville airport. Then at 2 o'clock supporters
can hear HER speak at the Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington. Clinton
comes at a time when national attention is largely focused on the
national presidential race, and few expect democratic candidate Barack
Obama to visit the state. Bruce Lunsford's Senate campaign spokesman
Cary Stemle says Clinton's visit should invigorate voters.

Over the weekend, incumbent Senator Mitch McConnell's campaign got a
boost from a visit by MCCONNELL'S WIFE, U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine
Chao. McConnell's campaign coffers are also significantly heftier than
Lunsford's, weighing in at more than $9 million in cash on hand versus
Lunsford's $1.3 million.
