Bill Clinton Coming To Española

Staff Report

The Presidential political season is starting to heat up here in New Mexico and the Valley will not be left out. A news release has announced that former President Bill Clinton will be in the state next week from May 24 – 25. During his stay he will be holding a public event in Española where he will campaign for Hillary Clinton.

This is the second time Bill Clinton will be in Española, having campaigned here in 2010 for then Lt. Governor Diane Denish who was running for Governor that year. Hilary Clinton herself visited Española in 2008 while she was campaigning for Barack Obama in the general election that year.

Bill Clinton has visited northern New Mexico several times before, including a visit to the area in 1994 while he was serving as President.

This latest visit will come two weeks before the June 7 primary where Hillary Clinton faces off against Senator Bernie Sanders.
