President Clinton will speak on the campus of Alabama State University at 4:45 p.m. Doors open at 3:45 p.m.  The Hillary for American Campaign announced that President Clinton will lay out the case for why Hillary Clinton is the best candidate to raise Alabamians’ wages and incomes and break down the barriers that exist for too many families.

As of press time the Alabama Political Reporter was still awaiting additional details about this trip, including when and where.

The candidate herself, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) will also be in Alabama on Saturday, February 27. Secretary Clinton will be in Birmingham to hold a Get Out the Vote rally in the Birmingham area, where she will encourage supporters to vote in Tuesday’s primary. 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.

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.
