It may be over, but Clinton's working Kentucky like it isn't

HARRODSBURG, Ky. — In the final hurried push for votes before Tuesday's election, both Democratic presidential campaigns have marshaled current and former governors and senators, an entertainer or two and even a few superdelegates from across the country to stump in Kentucky.

U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton herself campaigned in Bowling Green and Mayfield on Sunday in a four-day barnstorming tour of Kentucky, which will culminate with her election-night speech in Louisville on Tuesday.

U.S. Sen. Barack Obama didn't but he relied on a network of prominent supporters to rally volunteers, including his wife, Michelle, who was scheduled to make stops in Hopkinsville, Louisville and Lexington on Monday.

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland touted Clinton's wins in his home state and in Pennsylvania, her landslide by 41 percentage points in West Virginia, and her lead in the polls in Kentucky. Clinton's campaign also tapped pro-Clinton superdelegates to campaign in Kentucky over the weekend and on Sunday dispatched soap opera actress Heather Toms to rallies in Eastern Kentucky.

Clinton will speak at Transylvania University's Clive M. Beck Center at 6:30 p.m. on Monday after appearing in Maysville and Prestonsburg earlier. She'll meet up with her husband and former president, Bill Clinton, for a 9 p.m. rally at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville. Bill Clinton will campaign during the day in Grayson, Mount Sterling, Richmond and Danville.

Obama, meanwhile, is in Montana, where voters go to the polls June 3.
