NOVEMBER 2, 2006 - Posted at 4:12 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK, AR - President Bush will make a campaign stop in Arkansas on the eve of the election to rally Republicans.

Bush will appear at a rally Monday for state Republicans at the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport in Bentonville.  The Republican Party of Arkansas announced the visit today.

Tomorrow, former President Clinton is to appear in northeast Arkansas for a rally in Jonesboro for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Beebe.

Bush's trip marks his second visit to the state to campaign for Republicans in the midterm elections.  In August, he helped raise money for Republican Asa Hutchinson's gubernatorial campaign.

In September, Clinton helped Beebe and attorney general candidate Dustin McDaniel of Jonesboro with separate fundraisers.
