(Bill) Clinton coming to Wyoming?

Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC just said that there was a rumor flying around that our former president, Bill Clinton, might be stumping for Hillary in Wyoming on Thursday. Anyone else heard this rumor? I'll check the blogs and see what I can find.

We were new to Wyoming when Bill Clinton ran in 1992. He actually came to the Cheyenne airport during the campaign against Bush Sr. and seemed to shake every hand in the place. My wife Chris pushed her pregnant self forward twice to shake the candidate's hand. "Make way -- pregnant Democrat here! Make way!" She's shameless. I got only close enough to wave. Outside the airport gates, crazed Wyoming Repubs waved anti-Clinton banners and yelled some things that we didn't want to hear.

We all know what happened that November.

Barack, are you and/or Michelle coming to Wyoming before the Saturday caucuses?

UPDATE: This just in from the Casper Star-Tribune:

Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has announced that former President Bill Clinton will be in Wyoming on Thursday to attend events in Riverton, Rock Springs and Laramie.

President Clinton will make a series of stops across the Equality State on Thursday.

"I am thrilled to be returning to Wyoming to talk to voters about Hillary's vision for our country and their exciting role in choosing our next president," Bill Clinton said in a statement. Bill Clinton will visit Wyoming in advance of Saturday's Democratic caucuses. Specific times and places of his visits were not released.

Spokeswoman Carolyn Aanestad of Riverton's Central Wyoming College said that Hillary Clinton's campaign notified the college's facilities coordinator of a desire to use the college's food court between 2 and 4 p.m. on Thursday. Hillary Clinton's campaign told the college earlier in the day on Tuesday that the Clintons' daughter, Chelsea, would attend the event.
