LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Before he is honored by the PGA in Louisville, former President Bill Clinton will travel hundreds of miles campaigning for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Mr. Clinton will appear at two campaign events on Wednesday, August 6, according to the Grimes campaign.

The first event is at 11 a.m. at The Carrick House in downtown Lexington, the mansion owned by the catering and special events company of Grimes' father, Jerry Lundergan, a long time Clinton friend.

Mr. Clinton is then scheduled to travel to Hazard, Ky. where he will appear with Grimes at The Forum at the Hal Rogers Center.  The center is named for Republican Congressman Hal Rogers, the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, and a McConnell backer.

“We are humbled by President Clinton's continued commitment to our campaign and the hardworking people of Kentucky," Grimes campaign manager Jonathan Hurst said. "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." 

A February fundraiser in Louisville with Mr. Clinton netted about $700,000 for the Grimes campaign.
