Bill Clinton to make campaign stop for Reid

By Jordan Fabian -The Hill

Former President Bill Clinton will travel to Nevada Tuesday to campaign for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

Clinton, who has made frequent stops for Democratic candidates this cycle, will participate in a Las Vegas pre-early vote rally, according to Reid’s campaign.

“The rally will highlight the clear choice Nevada voters have between Senator Reid’s track record fighting to create jobs and Sharron Angle’s extreme and dangerous agenda,” the announcement says.

Even though Clinton had a touchy relationship with President Obama during his 2008 Democratic presidential primary against his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former president has become a public speaking fixture for Democratic candidates this cycle.

On Monday, Clinton traveled to Kentucky for an event with Senate nominee Jack Conway (D) and to West Virginia to stump for Gov. Joe Manchin (D), who is running for the late Sen. Robert Byrd’s (D-W.Va.) seat.

Clinton is scheduled to campaign for Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet next Monday, even though he endorsed his primary opponent Andrew Romanoff.

Angle led Reid by four points in a Rasmussen poll released last week.
