Sweet: Bill Clinton in Chicago Tuesday, Edwardsville Wednesday

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Bill Clinton hits one of his favorite Chicago spots, 437 Rush, owned by pal Phil Stefani, on Tuesday for a fund-raiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

On Wednesday, the former president stumps at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville; it's near a St. Louis media market (for the Missouri vote) and is part of Downstate where the New York senator may pick up some Illinois delegates.

Said Illinois Clinton spokesman Stacy Zolt Hara, "We wanted to do something downstate as both (Hillary Clinton) and (Bill Clinton) have spent considerable time in Chicago. We have tremendous support downstate and Edwardsville is a great location to allow people from many different parts of Central and Southern Illinois to make a short trip to be there for the event."
