MEDIA ADVISORY: Press Conference Scheduled For Wesley Clark Visit

Retired Gen. Wesley Clark will hold a press conference at the University of Iowa before he delivers the UI College of Law's 2003 Levitt Lecture on Friday, Sept. 19.

The press conference will begin at approximately 2:30 p.m. in the North Room of the Iowa Memorial Union. Clark will take questions from media representatives for about 30 minutes. He is scheduled to deliver the 2003 Levitt Lecture, "The American Leadership Role In a Changing world," at 4 p.m. in the IMU's Main Lounge.

Clark, a former U.S. Army general and leader of NATO forces during the victorious 1999 war in Kosovo, is also considering becoming a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president. However, he has said that he will announce his presidential intentions before coming to the University of Iowa and he will not use his appearance to declare his candidacy.

The press conference will be held whether Clark has declared his candidacy or not.
