Clinton Returns Focus to Arkansas

Bill Clinton "may be a globe-trotting citizen of the world, but these days he is focusing on his home state, and for good reason: The election ballot for next year looks like a Clinton political family tree, full of the former president's protégés and ex-staff members and family friends," the New York Times reports.

"Senator Mark Pryor, who was 11 when he first met Mr. Clinton and whose father has been a close ally of the president's for four decades, is fighting for re-election. James Lee Witt, whom Mr. Clinton met in a Little League dugout in 1974 and eventually named director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is running for Congress. And Patrick Henry Hays, a protégé and one of a band of locals who stumped on Mr. Clinton's behalf in 1992, calling themselves Arkansas Travelers, is also seeking a House seat."
