Hillary Clinton To Open An Office In State College
With the 2016 presidential election growing closer and the Pennsylvania primaries less than a month away, some of the political action has come to State College. According to her website, democratic party front-runner Hillary Clinton will open an office downtown at 315 S. Allen Street, right next to the municipal building.
The office will officially open on Monday, and will be christened with an official opening event from 4:30-6:30 p.m., which will include what the campaign website vaguely calls “featured speakers” who support Clinton. The former Secretary of State currently holds a fairly significant lead in polls conducted for the Pennsylvania democratic primary, according to Real Clear Politics.
While this is the first real move a presidential candidate has made in town, the race for Pennsylvania’s seat in the U.S. Senate has made numerous stops, including an upcoming forum with democratic hopefuls and visits from senatorial candidate John Fetterman, who apparently really likes drinking beer here.
