Hillary Clinton coming to Kentucky, Owensboro stop unlikely

Former presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton will be in Kentucky Sunday campaigning for Democrat Bruce Lunsford, but a visit to Owensboro before Election Day seems unlikely. 

Clinton will make stops in Hazard in far eastern Kentucky and in Louisville during the day as she talks up Lunsford, who is facing incumbent Republican Mitch McConnell in the U.S. Senate race. 

Cary Stemle with the Lunsford campaign said the exact times and locations of those stops haven’t been set, but it is unlikely any other locations will be added to the trip. 

Moretta Bosley, a Clinton friend and the co-owner of Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn in Owensboro said she is still working to get Clinton to Owensboro, but has so far been unsuccessful. 

“Her schedule is in an extreme state of flux,” said Bosley, who was a superdelegate to this year’s Democratic National Convention. “She doesn’t know from one day to the next where she’s going to be. … I’m still trying.”

Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, was in Paducah and Bowling Green to campaign for Lunsford last week and his visit started talk that Hillary might be coming to western Kentucky as well.
