Save the date folks, the Big Dog is coming to town!
Former President Bill Clinton is coming to Worcester on October 25 for a public campaign rally in support of Deval Patrick and Tim Murray.
From the Worcester Telegram & Gazette
On Sept. 25, Mr. McGovern sent Mr. Clinton an invitation to come to Worcester. Last weekend, the two ran into each other at the dedication of the George and Eleanor McGovern Library in Mitchell, South Dakota, home state of former Democratic senator George McGovern.
Both Mr. Clinton, who maintains a frenetic schedule flying to appearances across the country and around the world, and Mr. McGovern, a protégé of the former senator, spoke at the dedication.
Jim spoke to the president then and Mr. Clinton agreed to participate, said Michael Mershon, a spokesman for the Worcester congressman.
Were very excited about this. Its good for the ticket, and it was very important for Jim to have a public event, Mr. Mershon said. From our perspective, it also reinforces the importance of Central Massachusetts and Worcester to the governors race.
No time given yet, but as I find out, I’ll post it in the event calendar.
Anybody up for a pre or post rally meet-up? A few drinks, maybe some appetizers? There must be a 99 Restaurant* nearby. *g*

UPDATE: We got a shout-out from David Dahl at the Globe. Hi David, if you’re out this way covering this, be sure to drop by the bloggity meet-up for some drinkage. We love the press. 🙂
