Hillary Clinton planning Baton Rouge campaign stop next week

Hillary Clinton planning Baton Rouge campaign stop next week

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is heading to Baton Rouge next week for a campaign visit.

The Monday morning campaign stop is being described as a "grassroots organizing event" for the Democratic presidential candidate. It is aimed at building up local volunteers who will help the campaign leading into Louisiana's March 5th primary.

Clinton's visit to the state comes as its Republican governor, Bobby Jindal, is seeking the Republican nomination in a long-shot bid for the White House.

Members of the public who want to attend can sign up on the Clinton campaign website.

The Democratic contender also has a $2,700-per-person private fundraiser planned while in town, at the home of Jim Bernhard, a well-known businessman and former state Democratic Party leader.
