Clinton to be back in Terre Haute Thursday

Monday, April 28, 2008

TERRE HAUTE -- Area supporters for 2008 presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) will have another opportunity to see her in person.

The Clinton campaign recently announced she will be making another pit stop in Terre Haute this week.

Clinton visited the Saratoga Restaurant March 20, along with Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.). While at the Saratoga Restaurant in March, Clinton fielded questions from residents, discussing several talking points, including oil and energy prices, manufacturing and job loss.

Clinton will be in Indiana Tuesday, visiting Indianapolis, Hobart and Princeton. She will also be in Kokomo Thursday.

On Thursday, her "Standing up for Jobs" Tour will make a stop at Terre Haute South High School, 3737 S. Seventh St., Terre Haute. During the visit, Clinton plans to talk about how she would jump-start the economy and about creating new jobs in the Hoosier state.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the event is scheduled to start at 8 p.m.

Clinton is currently in a heated battle with Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for the Democratic presidential ticket. Indiana's primary is scheduled for May 6 as is North Carolina.

Recently, Clinton defeated Obama in the Pennsylvania primary.

Obama's campaign announced Monday evening that he would be making stops in Indiana this week as well.

Obama has scheduled a rally in Bloomington Wednesday. Further details will be released later in the week.

Following the two May 6 primaries, Clinton and Obama will duke it out in six other states. The primaries for Nebraska and West Virginia will take place May 13 while the Kentucky and Oregon primaries are scheduled for May 20. The Montana and South Dakota primaries are slated for June 3.

The Democratic National Convention will take place in Denver Aug. 25-28.

The Republican nomination has already been sewn up. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has the nomination all but locked up.
