Wes Clark To Endorse Jack Carter?

This is pure speculation but there is a hint that General Wesley Clark will endorse Senate candidate Jack Carter on Wednesday. I was just on Clark's WesPAC homepage and in his event calendar for Wednesday, August 16th it says "General Clark in Las Vegas for Jack Carter". It doesn't say much more, no details of why, when and where. There is also no hint on the Carter campaign website.

Clark has already endorsed congressional candidates Jill Derby (NV-02) and Charlie Brown (CA-04). He has been named Tahoe's friend of the month for that by this blog. Should he endorse Jack Carter this Wednesday he just may turn out to be Tahoe's friend of the year.

Update: There are now details on the WesPAC page:

Join General Wesley Clark and Jack Carter for a press conference at the Carter Headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada.
11 a.m. Wednesday, August 16, 2006

So, this really does look like Clark will endorse Carter.

Gen. Clark will be at a Jill Derby fundraiser in Reno on Election Night. He spoke to Christiane on KJFK yesterday. NV is ripe for a man of Wes Clark's credentials. He could very well win NV's Democratic 2008 Caucus.

Will he be the Democratic "Ike?"

While Clark is here, he should kick Reid's ass and tell him to also endorse Carter.
