On Saturday, February 27, President Clinton will hold a public event to get out the vote for Hillary Clinton in Montgomery, Alabama. President Clinton will speak on the campus of Alabama State University at 4:45 PM CST. Doors open at 3:45 PM CST.

President Clinton will lay out the case for why Hillary Clinton is the best candidate to raise Alabamians’ wages and incomes and break down the barriers that exist for too many families.

Hillary Clinton will speak the same day at Miles College in Birmingham. Campaign officials say the Clintons plan on discussing income inequality and other barriers faced by American families.

The announcement comes as the state’s GOP-dominated Legislature approves a bill to roll back Birmingham’s planned minimum wage increase to $10.10.

Republicans are headed to the state as well.

Republicans Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz will make stops in the state Saturday. Republican Donald Trump will hold a rally in Huntsville on Sunday afternoon.
