Arkansas continues to get a smattering of attention from presidential candidates, with Republican Ben Carson set to visit Little Rock Thursday and Republican Carly Fiorina to speak in Springdale in October. Also, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, who spoke recently to the Arkansas Democratic Party’s annual gathering, will return soon with a bank deposit book in hand.
Clinton is scheduled to attend a fund-raiser Sept. 21 at the Edgehill home of Kaki Hockersmith (White House interior designer during Bill Clinton’s presidency) and Max Mehlburger. The $2,700 admission fee (the maximum contribution to a federal candidate) comes with a photo with the former secretary of state. Those who raise $27,000 from friends and associates can be co-hosts and attend the hosts reception.
