Joe Lockhart didn't get a lot of time to settle into his new job. From the moment he came aboard Sen. John F. Kerry's campaign in late August, the former White House press secretary was fending off reports that the Democrat's presidential bid was in trouble and batting down rumors that his arrival signaled a staff shake-up. This week, he was drawn into the controversy over CBS News' broadcast of faked documents about President Bush's National Guard service.

The White House on Monday denied a New Yorker story that said friends in Arkansas were encouraging President Clinton to seek a Senate seat from that state after he leaves office. "He has no intention of running for the Senate [and] rules out the idea of running for the Senate," spokesman Joe Lockhart said. "I think his quote to me was, 'That story is crazy and I don't know where they got it from.' "

President Clinton will hold a year-end news conference at 11 a.m. PST on Monday. The session will be held at the Dean Acheson auditorium of the State Department rather than at the White House because the East Room is filled with Christmas decorations, presidential spokesman Joe Lockhart said. It will be Clinton's first formal news conference since a joint session on Oct. 29 with Chinese President Jiang Zemin.
