NEW YORK – Former President Bill Clinton will return to Buffalo on Monday on a final New York primary campaign swing on behalf of his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The former president will appear at a 10:30 a.m. get-out-the-vote phone bank event at Hillary for New York’s Buffalo headquarters at 671 Seneca St. He will then head to Rochester for a similar event at 2:15 p.m. at 1150 University Ave.
This will be Bill Clinton’s second trip to Buffalo in the last two weeks. He has been barnstorming the state on behalf of Hillary Clinton, who is engaged in a heated primary battle against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Some 850 people crowded into Grapevine Banquets in Depew on April 5 for a campaign event with the former president, where he warned local supporters not to get complacent before the primary while arguing that Hillary Clinton offers experienced leadership that Sanders can’t match.
Bill Clinton’s return to Western New York will be part of a busy last day of campaigning before Tuesday’s primaries.
Republican front-runner Donald Trump will hold a rally at 7 p.m. Monday in First Niagara Center.
Meantime, Hillary Clinton and Sanders are expected to campaign in the New York City area.
