Hillary Clinton Alabama visit: Everything you need to know about Hoover appearance

Source: al.com by Howard Koplowitz



Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be making her first visit to Alabama on Saturday as a 2016 presidential candidate. Clinton will be giving a speech to the Alabama Democratic Conference convention at The Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover.

The event is open to the public but tickets, which cost at least $150, sold out earlier this week. Clinton is scheduled to hold private meetings with supporters at the hotel from 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 p.m., when the lunch gets underway, according to her campaign. She's expected to speak at around 1 p.m.

The ADC, which formed in the 1960s and whose mission is to rally African Americans to vote Democrat, endorsed Clinton over then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008. The group is expected to back Clinton again during the convention.

"Hillary Clinton is right on the issues and Alabama is fortunate to have her visit us, we believe she will be the next President of the United States," ADC Chairman Joe Reed said in a statement from the Clinton campaign.

2. It'd take me at least 90 minutes from Montgomery.

Doesn't sound like a general invite rally, sold-out ADC Conference and all.

But whenever I head north up I 65, I got to hit Whataburger - jalapeno-and cheese value meal. It brings me closer to God! (Anyway, that's what my cardiologist says!)

I expect Hillary will be back in the area a few times before the SEC Primary March 1. If she nails down the ADC - and whatever's left of the Alabama Democratic Party - she'll nail down Alabama primary!
