Bill Clinton to head back on campaign trail

(CNN) - Bill Clinton was arguably the Democratic Party's biggest rock star on the campaign trail last year, and now the former president appears to be getting ready to hit the trail again.

CNN has confirmed that Clinton will be in his native state of Arkansas on March 16 to help Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor kick off his 2014 re-election bid. The fundraiser, in Little Rock, the state capital, will be headlined by Clinton, who served 12 years as Arkansas governor before being elected president in 1992.

Arkansas, Kentucky primaries pose challenge for Obama

(CNN) – President Barack Obama faced unlikely challenges in two Southern state primaries Tuesday, though the results won't pose any threat to his status as the Democratic presidential nominee, and both states are expected to vote solidly Republican in November's general election.

In Arkansas, Obama won the Democratic presidential primary with 58% of the vote, facing a challenge from lawyer and perpetual presidential candidate John Wolfe. Wolfe had 42% of the vote on Wednesday morning, with 53 of 75 counties reporting results.

Arkansas primary may pose challenge for Obama

(CNN) – Arkansas's Democratic presidential primary, which takes place Tuesday, wouldn't ordinarily seem like a political fight. After all, President Barack Obama has already wrapped up the Democratic presidential nomination and is engaged in a heated general election campaign with GOP rival Mitt Romney.

But the Arkansas primary may become another political headache for Obama, who two weeks ago faced an unlikely challenge from a federal inmate in West Virginia's Democratic contest. In Arkansas, the challenge comes from John Wolfe, a perpetual Democratic presidential candidate who has never held political office.

Arkansas Dems expected to take losses, follow Southern shift to GOP

Little Rock, Arkansas (CNN) - In the shadow of the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library, an ironic occurrence is taking shape. As the former two-term president traverses the country, rallying support for Democrats facing tough electoral prospects, his party is bracing for severe losses in his home state of Arkansas.

Embattled two-term Sen. Blanche Lincoln faces a bleak outlook in her bid for re-election, while Reps. Vic Snyder and Marion Berry are opting to retire, opening the door to Republican takeovers of their seats. A Republican and a Democrat are in Arkansas' two other congressional districts, and they're considered safe for the incumbent parties.
