Hillary Clinton to appear at USF in Tampa Tuesday

in 2017 by

Hillary Clinton will appear Tuesday afternoon at the student recreation center on the University of South Florida campus in Tampa, her campaign announced Sunday.

The campaign had announced on Friday the Democratic presidential nominee would be making an appearance in Tampa Tuesday, but hadn’t announced the time or place.

The event will start at 1:45 p.m., with the doors at student recreation center at USF opening up at 11:45 a.m. The facility is located at 12301 Maple Drive in Tampa. If you’d like to attend, you can go online here to register.

According to the campaign, she expected to focus on the importance of working with allies, and how “Donald Trump doesn’t have the temperament to serve as commander in chief.”

This will be Clinton’s fourth appearance in the Tampa Bay area this year, and the third in Tampa. She last came to the region a month ago, when she held a rally in St. Petersburg and toured 3 Daughters Brewery. She was in Tampa for a rally just one day before announcing Tim Kaine as her running mate in late July.
