A speech by U.S. Sen. John McCain that had been set for Friday has been rescheduled for next month, the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service said Thursday.
The Arizona senator and former Republican presidential candidate had been set to speak at the Robinson Center Exhibition Hall in Little Rock, but he has been forced the postpone the event because of the U.S. Senate's voting schedule, Clinton School Dean Skip Rutherford told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in an e-mail.
McCain's speech has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. April 12, Rutherford said.
McCain has served at the federal level since being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982. He is also a Vietnam War veteran who served 5 1/2 years in a prisoner of war camp in north Vietnam.
McCain serves on the four committees during the 113th Congress, including the Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Foreign Relations.
