Clinton Doors To Open @ 8 p.m.

Former president Bill Clinton will visit Springfield Saturday evening, the KY3 Political Notebook has learned.

But the details of his visit were still being worked out late Thursday night and should be finalized Friday, according to State Rep. Rachel Storch, Hillary Clinton's Missouri campaign chair.

Storch said Missouri State University has been ruled out as a venue because they are booked for events, but she said the venue will be located in central Springfield.

Storch did tell the KY3 Political Notebook that the doors for the event will open at 8 p.m. and that tickets will be first come, first served.

Clinton's speaking time has not been set. But knowing Clinton time and strategy, it wouldn't be suprising to see the former president making his pitch during the 10 p.m. newscasts to capture the live shot on all three television stations.
