LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Campaign officials say former President Bill Clinton and other political leaders plan to attend a March fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor's 2014 campaign.
Pryor, a Democrat, is running for his third term in the Senate. Campaign manager Jeff Weaver tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://is.gd/n39zax ) a March 16 fundraiser is planned in Little Rock.
Weaver says Clinton is expected to attend, along with Gov. Mike Beebe, former U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers and Pryor's father, former U.S. Sen. David Pryor. The campaign plans a dinner at the Peabody Hotel followed by events at the Statehouse Convention Center.
Pryor's next quarterly campaign finance report is due Jan. 31. As of Sept. 30, he reported almost $1.8 million cash on hand.
No Republicans have announced plans yet to run against Pryor.
