HOT SPRINGS, AR - Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has canceled a presidential campaign visit to New Hampshire this weekend because her husband's stepfather is seriously ill in Arkansas.

Campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Hanley did not elaborate on the nature of Dick Kelley's illness.

Kelley is a resident of Hot Springs and a former food brokerage executive.  He married Bill Clinton's mother, Virginia, in 1982.  He was her fourth husband.

Kelley has remained close to the Clinton family since Virginia Kelley's death in 1994.
