Climaxing a period in which Hillary Clinton seems to have significantly strengthened her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination and the GOP candidates had at each other in yet another televised battle royal, Memphis finds itself in line for some direct contemplation of some main contenders.

Dr. Ben Carson, currently leading longtime Republican frontrunner Donald Trump in Iowa, site of next February’s first votes for the record, will hold a rally on Friday night at West Memphis High School’s Lehr arena, from 6 to 8 p.m., with doors opening at 4 p.m.

Former Secretary of State Clinton, two weeks after a strong debate performance and mere days after confronting her Republican critics on a special House Benghazi committee, will be in Memphis for an appearance on November 20, her campaign announced. Details will follow.

Meanwhile, on Monday night, a local organizing committee for Clinton’s chief Democratic competitor, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, will meet at Newk’s Restaurant in Cordova.
