Clinton, who first visited the state for Martin last fall, will become the first high-profile Democrat to visit the state to campaign for the Senate challenger since Election Day.
The former president’s campaign event in Atlanta Wednesday will have an economic focus, according to Martin’s campaign.
Former Republican presidential nominee John McCain visited Georgia last week to campaign for Chambliss.
