It's official: a day after KC Buzz Blog reported the rumors, the Kansas Democratic Party has confirmed former President Bill Clinton as the keynote speaker at the D's annual Washington Days gathering next month.
Clinton will speak at the Topeka event March 2, the same day he'll deliver the Landon Lecture at Kansas State University.
Gov. Kathleen Sebelius released a statement saying she is "delighted" Clinton accepted the party's invitation.
Last year's Washington Days speaker was Sen. Barack Obama.
Tickets for Clinton's Washington Days address, $125 a piece, won't be available until Feb. 14.
