Clark said, "I'm going to announce this morning that I've accepted your draft, that I will seek to become the next president of the United States."
Clark also said while being interviewed for NBC's "Today Show" that he would run. Clark gave a series of television interviews early Wednesday from a Little Rock studio.
Clark scheduled an announcement at noon at a Little Rock boys and girls club. Advisers said yesterday Clark had told them he would enter the race to challenge President Bush.
The Little Rock-based group 'Draft Clark for President 2004' posted the webcast. Clark thanked volunteers who worked to build an organization for his campaign and told them he will need their further efforts.
Clark said, "We need to raise a shout across this land, we need to make a difference in American history."
