FRANKFORT — Former President Bill Clinton is expected to be in Louisville Monday night on the eve of the Nov. 2 election to campaign for Kentucky Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jack Conway.
“That’s what I understand,” Conway told reporters Thursday after a rally at state Democratic Party headquarters. “I’m getting the data like you all are getting it. I understand that he’s trying to visit five states and I understand that he’s coming to see us Monday evening.”
Asked if Clinton will be able to make it to Pikeville before the Louisville trip, Conway said, “I don’t know yet. I know his schedule is tight.”
Conway, who faces Republican nominee Rand Paul in Tuesday’s election, said the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is advising Clinton to visit states that “are real close, and ours is one of them.”
Conway said he did not know where or what time the event in Louisville with Clinton will occur.
Clinton, who recently was named in a national poll the most popular politician in America, attracted an estimated crowd of about 5,000 for Conway at an Oct. 11 rally in Lexington. Several Democrats said Clinton’s visit should have been in a rural area of the state instead of Lexington.
