ROGERS, AR - Former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is seeking re-election to her U.S. Senate seat in New York, will return to Arkansas in July to speak to a Democratic women's group and attend a fundraiser for her.
Clinton, the wife of former President and Arkansas governor Bill Clinton, is to speak at a July 15 luncheon of the Arkansas Federation of Democratic Women state convention. The event will be at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Rogers.
The federation also will have a fundraising reception for the senator prior to the 12:30 p.m. luncheon. The luncheon is open to the public. Tickets are $100 each. Fifty tickets are available for the fundraiser, at $500 each.
Clinton is considered a potential contender in the 2008 presidential race, but she has repeatedly said she is not thinking ahead to the 2008 presidential race.
