Louisville, Kentucky (CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton is returning to Kentucky the day before the midterm elections to try and help pry an open Senate seat out of Republican party hands.
The former president will team up on November 1 with Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, the Democrats' Senate nominee, a Conway campaign official confirms to CNN. But the campaign doesn't have details yet on where the event will be held. Clinton headlined a Conway rally in Lexington on October 11.
Conway is battling Republican nominee Rand Paul, who enjoys strong support by many in the Tea Party movement, in what's becoming an increasingly bitter campaign to succeed retiring Republican Sen. Jim Bunning. The most recent poll, released this week by Mason-Dixon, indicates that Paul has a five point advantage over Conway, which is within the survey's sampling error.
Conway frequently invoked Clinton while campaigning in western Kentucky, thanking the former president for his support as Conway closes out a tight race against Tea Party candidate Rand Paul.
Perhaps using Clinton's moderate, populist tone as a model for trying to win a southern moderate-to-conservative state, Conway even closed a stump speech by quoting the so-called "Great Communicator."
"I'll just wrap up by quoting Bill Clinton, who was in last week and I think's probably coming back: there's nothing that's wrong with America that can't be fixed with what's right with America," Conway told supporters in Elkton.
Conway doesn't mention President Obama by name. When CNN asked if he'd like the president to campaign for him in Kentucky, Conway's lack of enthusiasm was clear.
"Look, this campaign's about me versus Rand Paul, and about our record," Conway. "It's got to be about me versus Rand Paul."
Clinton has made many stops on the campaign trail in areas where moderate-to-conservative voters predominate, and where arguably the former president may be more popular than the current one. A Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted in August indicated that 55 percent of registered voters in Kentucky disapproved of the job Obama was doing as president.
"It's no secret that President Obama isn't particularly popular in some parts of the country. Democrats are thankful they've got a former president who is still popular with the base and can hit the campaign trail in places where Obama can't go," says Nathan Gonzales, political editor at the non-partisan Rothenberg Political Report. "Blue-collar Democratic voters have never been Obama's base, so Democrats are relying on President Clinton to rally those voters and help Democratic incumbents up and down the ballot."
