Former President Clinton to Stump for McWherter

The McWherter campaign confirmed that Clinton is scheduled to be in Nashville on Sept. 9. Spokesman Shelby White said Monday that detailed plans for the visit were still being worked out.

McWherter, the son of former Gov. Ned McWherter, faces Republican Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam in this fall's election.

Clinton's friendship with Ned McWherter dates back to when he was governor of neighboring Arkansas.

Clinton was the keynote speaker for a state Democratic Party fundraiser last year, and also came to Nashville and Memphis to support Harold Ford Jr.'s Senate bid in 2006.
