Former President Bill Clinton is slated to campaign on behalf of the three-term incumbent Monday in Waterbury, Lieberman's campaign spokeswoman said today.
"We are thrilled to have President Clinton come to the state to campaign for Senator Lieberman," the spokeswoman, Marion Steinfels, said. "It is not only a big day for our campaign, but it is a big day for Waterbury and Connecticut."
Steinfels said Clinton was expected to speak in the late afternoon, but added that plans for the event are still being made.
Clinton and Lieberman have known each other since Clinton worked on Lieberman's first campaign for state Senate in 1970, when Clinton attended Yale University in New Haven, she said.
She also noted that Lieberman was the first senator from outside of the South to endorse Clinton in his 1992 presidential campaign.
