SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Christie Vilsack hopes a former president's support will give her a boost in a close race for District Four against incumbent Congressman Steve King.

Bill Clinton is expected to speak down on Sioux City's Historic 4th Street later this evening.

Former President Clinton has been in demand from Democrats lately.

He's stumped in Nevada and Arizona and later tonight, he'll be in Des Moines, stumping for Leonard Boswell.

But first he'll be here on Historic 4th Street trying to convince voters to cast their ballot for Christie Vilsack.

The Vilsack-Clinton connection goes back to 2007, when Hillary Clinton and Tom Vilsack both ran for the Democratic nomination for President.

Vilsack was the first to drop out of the race, and backed Clinton.

The four campaigned together at Sioux City's annual Labor Day picnic in September of 2007.

But, the relationship actually goes back in further... because Secretary of State Clinton served as an aide in Washington along with Christie Vilsack's brother in the 70's.

These two families have been crossing paths for a while.
