Former President Bill Clinton and his daughter, Chelsea, have more stops planned this week in Indiana on behalf of Sen. Hillary Clinton. Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker says it’s no surprise that Senator Clinton has taken such an interest in the Hoosier state.

“There’s a lot of work to be done here because Senator Obama is from the state right next door. So this is going to be a really, really close race here in Indiana. And I thnk you’re seeing that with all the visits that are occurring – and that just started two weeks ago,” said Parker.

Chelsea Clinton is scheduled to be in New Albany on Tuesday. Bill Clinton will make stops in southern Indiana on Thursday.

Parker says Senator Barack Obama has planned a bus tour through the state Wednesday through Friday.
