Clinton stumps for Democrats in Arkansas, Texas

March 13, 1999
Web posted at: 9:56 a.m. EST (1456 GMT)

TEXARKANA, Texas (CNN) -- President Bill Clinton swung back through his home state of Arkansas Saturday for more fund-raising, after he attended a pair of events in Texas for Democratic Congressman Max Sandlin.

Clinton made his first stop in Arkansas early Friday for the dedication of his childhood home in Hope as a National Historic Site -- his first trip to the state since his impeachment.

Clinton speaks in Hope, Arkansas Friday  

Several hundred supporters braved the rain to greet the president on his arrival.

"I always knew people here stuck with me rain or shine," he said at Hope Municipal Airport, "but now I know it's literally true."

In Texas Friday night, Clinton said he was looking forward to a long future of fund-raising for his party after he leaves office in 2001.

"I love the idea that if I can stay healthy I can spend quite a few years trying to give back to this political system and the candidates and the people that I believe in who have given me so much," he said.

Clinton also said of his earlier trip to Hope that it was "an emotional day."

On Saturday, the president is scheduled to attend more fundraising events in the Arkansas capital, first at a private reception and then at a dinner honoring retired U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers.

Clinton is to return to Washington late Saturday.
