Sen. John McCain is scheduled to speak Friday evening at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock.
The Arizona senator and former presidential candidate plans to discuss current affairs and cover Congressional politics during the lecture, which will later be opened for questions from the audience.
Clinton School Public Programs Director Nikolai DiPippa says the event will be among the most attended in the school's eight-year history.
"We have over 1,100 people signed up so far," DiPippa said. "[With] his passion for town hall meetings, I imagine it will be a good conversation with the audience."
The event was originally scheduled for March 22 but was later postponed due to a scheduling conflict.
McCain will speak at the Barry L. Travis Exhibition Hall in the Robinson Center in downtown Little Rock. The lecture begins at 6 p.m.
