Clinton to campaign in Syracuse Friday
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in Syracuse Friday for two events, her campaign announced Wednesday.
The former senator, who represented New York, will hold a roundtable discussion on her plan to support manufacturing jobs. The time and location for the discussion has not yet been announced.
On Friday afternoon, Clinton will hold a grassroots organizing event for supporters at the Central New York Regional Market. That event starts at 2:00 p.m.
Clinton's swing through central New York comes in advance of New York's presidential primary on April 19. The most recent poll from Siena College shows Clinton with a 21-point lead over her Democratic opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders from Vermont. That poll was released on March 7. A poll from Quinnipiac University released Thursday morning shows Clinton with a 12-point lead over Sanders.
Sanders has called for a debate with Clinton in New York ahead of the primary, but nothing has been scheduled.
