Hillary Clinton To Campaign With Elizabeth Warren In Cincinnati Monday

Department of State

Hillary Clinton will campaign in Cincinnati Monday with someone who could become her running mate, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warner.

The Clinton Campaign says the Ohio Democratic Party event will take place at the Cincinnati Museum Center at 10:30 AM. Doors open at 8:30 AM.

Members of the public interested in attending this event should RSVP here: http://hrc.io/28Ndfg3.

"Clinton and Warren will discuss their shared commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top,'' a press release from the campaign said.

Recently, Clinton postponed a private fundraising event at the home of Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley in the wake of the massacre at an Orlando nightclub. She's changed her schedule before, too, to skip Cincinnati. Last September, a campaign rally for women was shifted at the last minute from Cincinnati to Columbus.

Clinton will come into town on Sunday evening for the once-postponed fundraising event at Cranley's house. 

Warren is a favorite of progressives in the party and many supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was Clinton's main rival for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Warren has come out and endorsed Clinton – something Sanders has yet to do. She is said to be on the short list of Clinton's possible running mates – in part because of her potential appeal to Sanders' supporters.

The presumptive Republican nominee has yet to return to Ohio since losing the March Ohio GOP primary to Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Kasich has yet to endorse Trump's candidacy.
