Beebe to attend Obama inauguration
Gov. Mike Beebe will be in Washington Monday and Tuesday of next week to attend inaugural events for President-elect Barack Obama, a spokesman for Beebe said today.
“He wants to show support for the president-elect, who of course has supported him in the past,” Matt DeCample said.
Obama appeared at a rally in Little Rock for Beebe and other Democrats in October 2006, while Beebe was campaigning for governor. Beebe endorsed Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination but endorsed Obama when he became the party’s nominee.
DeCample said Beebe also wants to attend because of the historic nature of the event and its importance for the Democratic Party.
“It’s a great day for America,” DeCample said.
