Former Senators Bumpers and Pryor Getting Involved in Clark Campaign

January 14, 2004 - Posted at 2:45 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Several Democratic Party leaders in Arkansas and former advisers to the Clinton administration are hitting the road in New Hampshire on Saturday to campaign for Wesley Clark, already a favorite of many Clintonites.

The volunteers, including former Senators Dale Bumpers and David Pryor, will pair up Saturday and canvass throughout New Hampshire before joining Clark for an afternoon rally, Clark spokesman Bill Buck said.

Clark's connections to Clinton come without the former President's endorsement or that of his wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.  The Clintons have declined to endorse any of the nine Democrats seeking the nomination.

In December, the Clark campaign sent a planeload of volunteers from Little Rock, Arkansas to New Hampshire in the middle of a snowstorm hoping they would connect with voters the way Bill Clinton's "Arkansas Travelers" did in 1992.

Clinton relieved Clark from duty as supreme allied commander because his defense secretary, William Cohen, had clashed with Clark dursing the Kosovo campaign and had recommended his removal.  Later, he presented Clark the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
