Just ten days before a planned campaign fundraising trip to St. Louis, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will officially launch her campaign with a “major speech” at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City.
After launching her campaign in a YouTube video and spending time in early primary and caucus states over the past couple months, Clinton’s campaign has billed the New York event as one where she plans to lay out her campaign platform after two other Democrats also running for the job have done the same.
“Hillary Clinton grew up in Illinois, and her career spent working on behalf of children and families has taken her from Massachusetts to Washington, D.C., Arkansas to New York. But it was the voters of New York who elected her to serve as their first female senator,” said a Clinton campaign official. “Throughout her career, Hillary Clinton has been inspired by FDR’s belief that America is stronger when we summon the work and talents of all Americans and has long admired Eleanor Roosevelt as a role model.”
From New York, Clinton will travel to Missouri’s north, visiting an organizing meeting in Iowa, “to build the ground-up, grassroots-focused organization needed to compete and win.”
Prior to her visit to Missouri on June 23, Clinton’s campaign said the former U.S. Secretary of State will also spend time in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.
