Clark Campaign Kicks Off RV Tour in Little Rock

November 21, 2003 - Posted at 5:58 p.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Retired General Wesley Clark's presidential campaign kicked off the southern leg of an RV tour this afternoon.  Four campaign staffers, including a videographer, will ride in the 29-foot long RV, passing out thousands of Clark candy bars.

The van left from Little Rock's Union Station this afternoon and is headed for northwest Arkansas tonight, where Clark will meet up with the staffers.  The candidate plans appearances in Fayetteville and Springdale tonight.

Campaign organizers are touting the tour as a combination of old school grassroots politicking with a new technological twist.  Daily video journals of the trip can be accessed on Clark's Web site.

Another RV left from New York City yesterday with plans to stop in several northeastern states, including the first early primary state...New Hampshire.
