Clinton is scheduled to appear at events for incumbent Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln and congressional candidate Chad Causey on September 8.
Clinton backed both candidates in the Democratic primary, with the former president repeatedly hitting the trail for Lincoln as she fought to survive a tight Democratic primary process against the more liberal Lieutenant Gov. Bill Halter.
The Lincoln campaign billed its Clinton event as a "celebration in honor of her one-year anniversary as Senate Agriculture Chairman."
And Causey campaign spokesman Anders Reynolds told CNN that Clinton would appear on the congressional hopeful's behalf on the same day, at an event to be held in Little Rock.
Both Causey and Lincoln face tough challenges in the general election, with Lincoln squaring off against Republican candidate Rep. John Boozman in the Senate race, and Causey facing Republican Rick Crawford for the seat left open by the retirement of Rep. Marion Berry.
