(CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton is heading home to help out a fellow Democrat facing a very tough re-election bid.
The former president teams up with Sen. Blanche Lincoln in his native Arkansas at an event in Jonesboro Wednesday evening.
"I am grateful for President's Clinton support," said Lincoln in a statement. "He cares deeply about his home state and our people. I look forward to an exciting day together in Northeast Arkansas."
Clinton backed the two-term senator in the Democratic primary and campaigned in person with her in the days before June's runoff contest, helping the senator fend off a tough challenge from Arkansas Lt. Gov. Bill Halter, who enjoyed support from many progressives and union leaders.
Clinton teamed up with Lincoln again at an event last month marking her one year anniversary as the chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture committee.
Lincoln faces four-term Republican Rep. John Boozman in November's general election. Polls of Arkansas voters suggest Boozman holds a double digit lead in the contest.
The candidates faced off earlier Wednesday in a debate that will air on local television later in the day.
The former president has become the Democrats "go-to guy" on the campaign trial this election cycle. This week alone he's already teamed up with Democratic candidates in Kentucky, West Virginia, New York, and Nevada, with stops in New Mexico and California to come.
