According to Maggie Haberman of Politico (far and away the best source for all things Hillary), the former Secretary of State is coming to Philadelphia next week to campaign for Democratic nominee Tom Wolf.
“Clinton has several stops planned for Democratic gubernatorial hopefuls,” Haberman writes. “In addition to helping [New Hampshire Governor Maggie] Hassan, she will host her first public fundraiser next week in Philadelphia for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Wolf, a “Women for Wolf” event, aides said.”
The piece details all the various Senate and Governor’s races that the presumptive 2016 presidential front-runner will visit this fall.
Clinton has long ties to Pennsylvania as her father was born in Scranton. She won the state’s 2008 presidential primary in a landslide over Barack Obama and her husband carried the commonwealth in 1992 and 1996.
The former New York Senator last visited Philadelphia this time last year when she accepted the Constitution Center’s annual Liberty Medal.
Suffice to say, the big surrogate phase of the campaign has begun and the Wolf campaign must be pleased with their opening salvo.
