Kerry Wraps Up Arkansas Trip This Morning

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Senator John Kerry continues his campaign visit to Arkansas with a stop at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences this morning.

Kerry arrived yesterday afternoon in Little Rock and drew about 700 people for a campaign rally that was followed by a fund-raiser.  The presumed Democratic nominee raised about $750,000.

Among those speaking last night at Kerry's fund-raiser was retired Army General Wesley Clark of Little Rock.  Clark ran against Kerry in the early Democratic primaries but has since backed Kerry's campaign.

Kerry said the Bush administration had failed veterans by cutting the Veterans Administration budget.
