Hillary Clinton Will Campaign in Philly on Wednesday
Update [4/19/2016]: Hillary Clinton, fresh off her big win in New York, has added a second appearance to her Philadelphia itinerary. At 4:15 p.m., the Democratic frontrunner will hold an invite-only discussion with former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and the Mothers of the Movement at St. Paul’s Baptist Church, 1000 Wallace Street. Bill Clinton, who got into hot water in Philly earlier this month, will be doing his in-state campaigning in the run-up to Pennsylvania’s primary in Johnstown and Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, Governor Tom Wolf will be kicking off a Harrisburg phone bank at 5:30 p.m. at 510 North Third Street, Harrisburg. Her opponent, Bernie Sanders, who held a rally at Temple University on April 6th, spoke to large groups in Erie in State College yesterday.
Earlier: With just more than a week left before the April 26th Pennsylvania Democratic Primary, frontrunner Hillary Clinton plans to return to Philadelphia to campaign. Clinton will hold an event on Wednesday, April 20th, at The Fillmore, located at 29 E Allen Street in Philadelphia. She spoke at the AFL-CIO labor convention on April 6th at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Philly.
Doors for this Wednesday’s event open at 4:30 p.m., and it is scheduled to get underway at 6:30.
“On Wednesday, April 20, Hillary Clinton will campaign in Philadelphia ahead of the April 26 Pennsylvania Primary,” a press release from Hillary for America Press said. “Clinton will attend an organizing event where she will discuss how she is the only candidate with real plans that can deliver results and break down barriers for Pennsylvania families.”
Clinton will square off with Bernie Sanders in tomorrow’s New York Democratic Primary before turning her attention to Pennsylvania. Sanders has built significant momentum in the past few weeks after securing a string of victories in several states. The result in New York could give the winning candidate serious momentum ahead of the contest in Pa. — Clinton is a former senator from New York while Sanders hails from Brooklyn.
