LOUISVILLE, KY -- After years of being either taken for granted or ignored, the campaign for the Democratic nomination for president in Kentucky kicks into high gear Monday, as the two major contenders scramble for every vote.
Sen. Barack Obama's campaign said Saturday he'll be in Louisville for a rally Monday at the Kentucky International Convention Center. The rally is free and open to the public and begins at 7 p.m. -- doors will open two hours earlier. A campaign news release indicates Obama plans to "continue his campaign in Kentucky" after Louisville, but there were no details on when or where.
Tickets are not mandatory but campaign officials recommend people interested in attending R.S.V.P. at www.barackobama.com.
Hillary Clinton, her husband former President Bill Clinton, and their daughter Chelsea have made several trips to the commonwealth already and have said they plan future appearances in the Bluegrass State.
