BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton will visit Birmingham in October to deliver an address to the Alabama Democratic Conference.

ADC Chairman Joe L. Reed said Clinton will speak at the semi-annual convention, held at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham – The Wynfrey Hotel, on Oct. 17.

“There are a lot of issues facing Alabamians that Mrs. Clinton will be expected to address. Front-burner issues are: Medicaid, tuition for college students, judicial appointments, education, minimum wages, fair taxes, Voting Rights and immigration,” Reed said in a news release.

“Hillary Clinton is right on the issues and Alabama is fortunate to have her visit us, we believe she will be the next President of the United States,” Reed added.

Reed said some delegate candidates pledges to Clinton have already qualified. Qualifying ends Nov. 6, 2016. The Democratic National Convention will be held July 25-28, 2016 in Philadelphia. Alabama has 64 delegates.
