Hillary Clinton plans campaign event in Minneapolis

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is planning a campaign stop in Minnesota next month.

Clinton’s campaign announced Wednesday that she will appear at an event in Minneapolis on Dec. 15, to “continue building her grassroots network in Minnesota” ahead of the state’s March 1 precinct caucuses. The time and location were not announced.

The campaign advisory said that the former secretary of state will discuss “issues that keep Minnesotans up at night” at the event and how she would address those issues as president.

Clinton has the support of many key Minnesota Democrats, including Gov. Mark Dayton and U.S. Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken.

Her last appearance here was in August during the Democratic National Committee summer meeting. Clinton’s Democratic rivals, Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders, also appeared at the meeting.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is also coming to Minnesota. He has a private fundraiser scheduled Dec. 2 in Minneapolis.

The last Republican presidential candidate to visit Minnesota was Rand Paul. The Kentucky senator made stops in Duluth, Minneapolis and Rochester on Nov. 9.
