Former President Bill Clinton will speak in Fresno on Monday at a location yet to be announced while campaigning for his wife, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Bill Clinton’s speech will be open to the public and is expected to last about an hour before he heads to another engagement in Sacramento that evening, said Doug Kessler, the California Democratic Party Region 8 chair and co-chair for Southern Central Valley for Hillary. Campaign officials told Kessler that they don’t expect Bill Clinton to visit any other sites in town.
The Clinton campaign has selected a short list of two to three possible venues for Bill Clinton’s speech, Kessler said. Campaign staff and Secret Service personnel are expected to be in Fresno on Thursday to visit the sites before making the final selection.
The former president was last in Fresno on Sept. 12, 1996 when he visited Morris E. Dailey Elementary School. (A year earlier, in September 1995, he visited Abraham Lincoln Middle School in Selma, and in 1992, when he was a presidential candidate, he visited Kerman High School.)
