Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to attend campaign events with Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes on Aug. 6 in Lexington and Hazard.

The 42nd president is making his second trip to the Bluegrass for Grimes, who is Kentucky's secretary of state. He attended a fundraiser in Louisville for the challenger to U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in February.

While in Lexington, Clinton will appear with Grimes at an event at the Carrick House. They'll campaign together in Hazard at the Hal Rogers Center.

"We are humbled by President Clinton's continued commitment to our campaign and the hardworking people of Kentucky," said Jonathan Hurst, Grimes' campaign manager, in a statement. "The president shares Alison's vision for a strong middle class, and his support in electing Alison, a champion for working families, to the U.S. Senate is invaluable."
