Senator Hillary Clinton will be  in Louisville tomorrow Friday. The Democratic presidential candidate will headline a party fundraiser at the Kentucky International Convention Center. She last visited Louisville in March.

Clinton’s national campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe says the New York senator will be making a lot of appearances across the Commonwealth leading up to the May 20 primary.

He dismisses suggestions that the Clinton campaign is on its last legs and the senator has little chance of overtaking Barack Obama.

“Can we win the nomination?   You bet we can, and you know what?    Lucky for us it’s not up to TV pundits,  its up to the voters,  it’s up to voters in Kentucky and they don’t care what they’re saying on television.    It’s up to the voters,”  McAuliffe said.

Kentucky has 51 pledged delegates and nine superdelegates, three of which have declared their support for Senator Clinton. Obama has the backing of two Kentucky superdelegates, Congressmen John Yarmuth and Ben Chandler.
