Clark Makes Official Announcement in Little Rock

September 17, 2003 - Posted at: 8:22 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Former Army General Wesley Clark revealed his decision to run for president several hours before a planned announcement today.  He said in a webcast (www.draftwesleyclark.com ) for volunteers that he would enter the Democratic primaries.

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."

    Miscanthus has proven to be a very risky crop in Region 8 as well as unpopular. However, it is not as easy to get rid of as many would think.
