LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Sen. John McCain's scheduled speech the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service has been pushed back to next month.
The Republican from Arizona was originally scheduled to discuss current affairs Friday night in Little Rock. His lecture has been rescheduled for April 12 because of a scheduling conflict.
McCain was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982. He is now serving his fifth term in the U.S. Senate.
McCain won the Republican nomination for president in 2008 and lost to President Barack Obama in the general election.
His speech is set for 6 p.m. April 12 in Sturgis Hall at the Clinton School in downtown Little Rock.
