Clinton Makes Unannounced Visit to Hot Springs

JANUARY 30, 2007 - Posted at 7:46 a.m. CST

 

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Former president Bill Clinton has made an unannounced visit to Hot Springs, where he grew up and graduated from high school.

Little Rock television station KATV reported that Clinton flew into the Hot Springs Airport about 10:30 a.m. yesterday.

Local officials said the former president was in town to visit his stepfather, Dick Kelley. The former president's mother, Virginia Clinton Kelley, died of breast cancer in 1994.

Clinton reportedly left the city late yesterday afternoon, but his destination was unknown.

The former president is also a former Arkansas governor. He now lives in Chappaqua, New York, north of New York City, with his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton, a U.S. senator from that state who has announced a bid for the White House herself in 2008.
