Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole is coming home to Kansas to visit the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas later this month.

The 90-year-old former Senate majority leader will take part in a one-hour open house April 22 at the institute on the Lawrence campus. Doors will open to the public at 10 a.m. The event will also be simulcast online via the Dole Institute's website.

The Russell native was the Republican nominee for president against Democratic incumbent Bill Clinton in 1996. He now works part-time as a special counsel for the law firm of Alston & Bird in Washington, D.C.

In a statement issued by the firm Thursday, Dole said he's "not running for anything" and planned the visit to see old friends and meet new ones.
