Breaking news: Clear your schedules (OK, our schedules), as the campaign-trail parade continues. According to a woman in Hillary Clinton's press office, Bill Clinton's making several appearances in the area in coming days -- beginning tomorrow morning. On Sunday, the former president will attend an early voting event in Arlington, at the Bob Duncan Community Center in Vandergriff Park. The event begins at 9:30 a.m.
Then, after a couple of days in Ohio, he returns to the DFW on Tuesday, with events scheduled in Dallas and Fort Worth; he flies to Austin and Houston on Wednesday. No times or venues have yet been announced Tuesday's local events -- and it's possible things might change, as "his schedule's in flux," says the Clinton press rep. (Indeed, just moments before I spoke with her, an e-mail had gone out announcing Clinton's Dallas appearance was on Wednesday.) So, details forthcoming as they're announced. Or changed. --Robert Wilonsky
Update: Sunday evening, the Clinton campaign announced where Bill Clinton will appear on Tuesday: At 11:45 a.m., he'll be at Mountain View Community College on the East Patio. Then, at 5:30 that evening, he'll be in Fort Worth at the Marine Park, on the corner of Ellis Avenue and NW 15 Street -- "near the soccer field," says the campaign e-mail.
