Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will make a stop in Green Bay next week, alongside President Barack Obama.
The announcement from Clinton’s campaign came shortly after the president endorsed her in the race. “I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. She’s got the courage, the compassion, and the heart to get the job done…I have seen her judgment. I’ve seen her toughness. I’ve seen her commitment to our values up close. And I’ve seen her determination to give every American a fair shot at opportunity, no matter how tough the fight — that’s what’s always driven her, and still does,” Obama said in a video message posted online Thursday.
The campaign said Clinton and the president will use the Green Bay stop on Wednesday, Jun 15 to “discuss building on the progress we’ve made and their vision for an America that is stronger together.”
Obama’s endorsement Thursday came just hours after the president met with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who remains in the race despite the Associated Press announcing earlier this week that Clinton has secured enough pledged delegates to be considered the presumptive nominee. ABC News reports that Sanders has pledged to continue campaigning through the final primary next week in Washington D.C., and to take his platform to the party’s national convention this summer.
