Former President Bill Clinton will speak Monday at the Satellite Student Union at Fresno State on behalf of his wife Hillary’s presidential campaign.
The Clinton campaign announced that the event will begin at 11:15 a.m. and will feature 86-year-old Dolores Huerta, co-founder of United Farm Workers. Satellite Student Union doors will open to the public at 10:15 a.m., the campaign said. It gave a webpage asking the public to RSVP.
A private event for Democratic activists with Clinton will be held at the Satellite Student Union before the public speech, said Doug Kessler, a local Democratic Party leader helping coordinate Clinton’s appearance.
The former president’s visit is part of a California trip that will take him from Southern California to the Central Valley. From Fresno, he will head north to Stockton and Sacramento.
Never miss a local story.
Clinton will arrive in California on Saturday for events in Chula Vista and Pomona.
On Sunday and Monday, the former president will enter the Valley. The first stop will be 2 p.m. Sunday in Bakersfield at the United Farm Workers convention, Kessler said. That is being held at the Rabobank Convention Center downtown.
The California primary is June 7. Hillary Clinton’s opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, is already actively campaigning in the state. She has a large lead in delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination, but Sanders vows to fight on.
