Hillary Clinton Cancels Eau Claire Appearance

The campaign appearance of Senator Hillary Clinton in Eau Claire
this Monday has been cancelled.

Local Clinton campaign spokesperson Lori Scott told TV-13 News that she received notice of the cancellation late Friday night.

The reasons were not made totally clear by higher campaign officials, but Scott inferred that the decision centered around the high number of appearances on the senator's schedule elsewhere.

Clinton had been scheduled to hold a town hall style meeting at Memorial High School between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday.

In fact, advance staff for the campaign visited Eau Claire Friday to find a sizeable venue, and landed on Memorial High School in part because public schools were off because of President's Day.

Wisconsin's presidential preference primary is Tuesday with polls opening at 7:00 a.m. and closing at 8:00 p.m.
