Nation: Both Clintons Prepared to Play in Tight Races

The Clinton family is set to crisscross the country promoting fellow Democrats in the final days of the campaign season.

Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to headline a Thursday evening rally for comedian Al Franken (D), who is challenging Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) in a three-way race with former Sen. Dean Barkley (I).

Clinton will headline a “Five Days to Change” rally for Democratic candidates, including presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.), at the Minneapolis Convention Center with Franken and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), according to Franken’s campaign.

The former president is also scheduled to appear in New Jersey’s battleground 7th district on Saturday to rally supporters of state Assemblywoman Linda Stender (D). Stender is locked in a tossup contest with state Sen. Leonard Lance (R) in the race to replace retiring Rep. Mike Ferguson (R).

On Sunday, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) will head to Kentucky to campaign for businessman Bruce Lunsford (D), who is in a tight battle with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R). Clinton already made one trip to Kentucky in September as Democrats became increasingly confident they had a shot of knocking off the Minority Leader in the once-safe seat.
