Former President Bill Clinton is visiting the South Coast today, as part of a campaign swing supporting his wife’s presidential bid.

Mr. Clinton flew into Santa Barbara this morning. He gave a lunchtime speech to an invited group of guests at a downtown Santa Barbara Hotel. It was closed to the media.

Tonight, he’s scheduled to be the guest of honor at a fundraising event in Hope Ranch.

Mr. Clinton has visited Santa Barbara before, once before he became President, and once while he was in office.
