Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will speak in Madison on Monday, two days after her Democratic opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, drew a large crowd here and touted his campaign’s momentum.
Clinton will make remarks to invited guests at UW-Madison’s Gordon Commons, 770 W. Dayton Street, at 3:45 p.m. Doors open at 2:45 p.m. A UW-Madison news release says the event is not open to the campus community or the public.
Because of Clinton’s appearance, Lake Street will be closed to traffic between Dayton and Johnson streets, starting at about noon, and to pedestrians after 3 p.m., until the event is over.
After Madison, Clinton will head to three more cities in Wisconsin — Milwaukee, La Crosse and Green Bay — this week before the state’s presidential primary.
Clinton’s daughter Chelsea made a swing through the state last Thursday, with appearances in Madison, Milwaukee and Waukesha.
Sanders drew an estimated 8,000 people to the Alliant Energy Center on Saturday and said Wisconsin is a key state for him.
Sanders scored wins in Washington state, Alaska and Hawaii caucuses on Saturday but remains well behind front-runner Clinton in the delegate count.
Republican contender Ohio Gov. John Kasich will also campaign in Madison on Monday. A town hall meeting is scheduled at the Sheraton Madison Hotel at 6 p.m., with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. Kasich will appear at an event in West Salem on Monday as well.
Republican front-runner Donald Trump will hold a rally at the Janesville Conference Center on Tuesday at 3 p.m.
