The public event will take place on the campus of Miles College at 12:45 p.m. Clinton (age 68) is expected to lay out the case for why she is the best candidate to raise Alabamians’ wages and incomes and break down the barriers that exist for too many families.

The Democratic Primary in South Carolina is also on Saturday.
Mrs. Clinton faces a determined Primary opponent in US Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont). The 74 year old independent from Vermont is promising free college and Medicare coverage for everybody.
Sen. Sanders tied the former First Lady in Iowa and beat her by double digits in New Hampshire. Clinton bounced back with a 52 to 48 victory in Nevada. Sec. Clinton is hoping for strong support among Black voters to vault her ahead of her rival in South Carolina on Saturday and then in the SEC Primary on Tuesday, March 1.
